Research Interests

Historically, my research interests have involved studying the endocrine mechanisms underlying non-mammalian vertebrate growth, particularly thyroid hormone mechanisms in fish. Currently, I am not involved in any active research projects. However, I do not rule out the possibility that I could reinitiate research in the area of endocrine mechanisms of growth and development.
