Research Interests

I no longer have a research laboratory at the University of Florida, since becoming a part-time faculty member. I still continue to review papers, grants, etc., in my area of expertise, which is oogenesis and oocyte growth in lower vertebrates (mainly teleost fish). A few exemplary papers are listed below.
