Specific Research Interests:

I have always been actively interested in the ecology and life history of both bony fishes and chondrichthyans, especially those in the deep sea. Recently, I have concentrated on age, growth, age validation, reproduction, demography, and feeding habit studies. We often use radiochemistry and bomb-generated radiocarbon studies in our age validation studies on deep-water and chondrichthyan fishes. In July, 2009, I retired and am now Professor Emeritus. As such, I continue to work on research but am no longer able to accept graduate students.

Current Projects:

(1) Age, growth and validation, reproduction, demography, and feeding habits of marine bony and cartilaginous fishes; (2) Age validation studies of deep-sea corals; (3) Habitat utilization patterns of deep-sea fishes and invertebrates.
