I was raised in sunny Southern California and spent most of my life in and around the ocean.
Ph.D University of Washington - Biomechanics of filter-feeding in sharks and rays
B.S. California State University Long Beach - Marine Biology. Shark assimilation efficiencies
Arizona State University as a Post Doctoral Scholar in Dr. Lara Ferry's laboratory.
In Fall 2014, I joined California State University Fullerton's (CSUF) Biology Department as an Assistant Professor of Biomechanics. My lab focuses on multiple topics in functional morphology and comparative biomechanics of marine systems. I am now accepting applications for Master's students for the Functional Anatomy, Biomechanics, and Biomaterials (FABB) Lab.
