My areas of research interest include marine ecology, invertebrate
zoology (especially molluscs), estuarine biology, and the ways in
which organisms are adapted to the physiological conditions of their environments.
My Master's research focused on the predator-prey relationship between
two species found in the Great Bay Estuary system. The predator is
the nudibranch, Tenellia adspersa, which preys on the hydroid
Cordylophora lacustris. I studied the effects of salinity on
the two organisms and how differences in tolerance to low salinities
provides a refuge for the hydroids.
The files below are served off my PowerMac G4 desktop machine. Since
I am occasionally doing silly things to it that mean it isn't 100%
functional, these links might not always work, but since I don't have
enough disk space on the UNH Unix account to hold all this stuff, it
is a good solution. If you are really curious to see these files but
can't access them, send me an
e-mail, and I'll fix it!

Freshwater Gastropods of North America Project
I am currently participating in the Freshwater Gastropods of North
American Project. The project's goal is to survey and document the
populations of freshwater snails in the US and Canada. I have started
collecting specimens in New Hampshire.
