    Education

    BS - 1977 Anderson College
    MS - 1980 Virginia Poly. Inst. And State University
    PhD - 1983 Indiana State University

    Field

    Physiological ecology of vertebrates, evolutionary ecology of vertebrate energetics, and parasite (helminth) ecology

    Interests

    My main area of interest is the physiological ecology of animals. I am currently studying the effects of stressors such as metals or salinity on the metabolism of a variety of fish species. I am collaborating with Dr. John Peles of Penn State on many of these studies.
