About me

I study evolution of the phylum Nemertea, through use of phylogenetic systematics to integrate and organize studies of comparative morphology (histochemical, histological and ultrastructural), life-history attributes, and molecular data.
I also am interested in biogeography of Nemertea, especially those belonging to the specialized marine interstitial fauna.
