The Ocellated Waspfish (Apistus carinatus) is one of the most interesting, enigmatic, and beautiful fishes in The Field Museum's fish collection.
A major research focus of my laboratory is the locomotor biology of fishes that generate forward propulsion by oscillating and undulating the fins.
Fish feeding biology is a well-established model system for the study of biomechanics, physiology, and comparative diversity.
A major challenge in biology is the resolution of phylogenetic relationships among diverse clades of fishes living in coastal areas and on coral reefs.
