Welcome to our lab web site

In the Biomechanics and Phylogenetics Laboratory- we are interested in a wide range of research topics, as well as teaching, field work, and outreach.

  • Biomechanics of vertebrate feeding and locomotion
  • Phylogenetic systematics of coral reef fishes
  • Evolutionary synthesis of structure, function and phylogeny
  • Biomechanical modeling and app development
  • Synchrotron x-ray analysis of respiration
  • Field work and SCUBA exploration of coral reefs
  • Teaching, training and outreach for multiple audiences

Please explore some of our research themes, download some of the results of our efforts, and we encourage you to contact us if you have questions,  or if you are interested in joining the lab.
