Research in my lab focuses on phylogenetics, morphometrics, taxonomy, biogeography, and ecology of a variety of teleostean fishes. The main groups we are working with are deep-sea hatchetfishes (Sternoptychidae), especially Polyipnus, codlets (Bregmacerotidae) and related gadiforms, gobies (Gobiidae, especially Gobiodon), and Neotropical characids (especially Creagrutus). The ecological studies are concerned with dietary analysis based on gut contents of various inshore fishes, including gobies (e.g., Gobiosoma and Ctenogobius species) and juvenile carangids (especially Trachinotus species).
