General Interests: I investigates the development and evolution of cranial sensory systems in fishes. In particular, we are interested in the development and evolution of the lateral line system, and we have focused on a variety of teleost fish taxa (e.g, Butterflyfishes, zebrafish, flounders, cichlids, greenlings). Each of these taxa has interesting and unique attributes, which has allowed us to ask fundamental questions about lateral line evolution and patterns and mechanisms of development in the lateral system.

Taxa: Cypriniformes
Character Types: Development and Morphology
Target Continents: Worldwide
