I am an Ichthyologist and Ecologist, and I am particularly interested in climate change ecology; for example, fish age and growth characteristics with regard to climate change. I also publish on fish dispersal and distribution, feeding ecology, and habitat. I regularly publish about traditional aspects of Ichthyology. For example, I publish on new species of sharks, rays, and bony fishes, but I include aspects of ecology into the descriptions.
