My primary areas of interest are diseases of free-ranging wildlife and conservation. I work intensively with marine turtles as a contract veterinarian in the Office of Protected Resources (National Marine Fisheries Service). Other species of interest include marine mammals, crocodilians, other reptiles, and amphibians. Current and past projects include a variety of infectious and noninfectious disease studies, investigations of animal die-offs, and studies of human impacts. In addition to my role as a diagnostic pathologist, I serve as co-investigator in the Marine Animal Diagnostic Laboratory and have a strong interest in applied molecular studies and diagnostics.
