Ph.D., University of Victoria, Canada, 2001
B.S., University of Bielefeld, Germany, 1995

Specialty: Marine Invertebrate Zoology

Research Interests:

I am interested in phylogeny, species delimitation and geographic population structuring of marine invertebrates, focusing on marine annelids. My approaches include morphological, reproductive and developmental studies, genomics and transcriptomics.

Courses Taught:

Marine Invertebrate Zoology (MARB 435/689)   
Evolutionary Biology (MARB 668)
