As a marine biologist, I specialize in parasites and the diseases they cause. My primary interests deal with flukes, roundworms, tapeworms, and a few protozoan groups that infect marine, coastal, and freshwater fishes, birds, mammals, frogs, mollusks, and crustaceans. I am interested in their taxonomy, classification, life histories, host-parasite relationships, and use as indicators of environmental conditions. This also includes the normal parasites of animals that have a potential public health risk.
