My research interests are directed primarily toward evolutionary ecology and conservation of desert fishes of southwestern North America, with an emphasis on pupfishes (Genus Cyprinodon) of México.
***I am in the process of expanding, revamping, and otherwise updating the content of this website. Added material will cover recent conservation, field, and research activities in México (Chihuahua primarily). In particular, I will include the latest developments in conservation projects conducted with colleagues at Pronatura Noreste and Universidad Autonóma de Nuevo León. These efforts take a bottom-up approach to sustainable development by working directly with landowners, including individuals and communities (ejidos). Our efforts aim to protect desert springs and their native and endemic inhabitants while also provide long-term security for human communities. Basic research is a vital part of this work, and details on recent studies will be added as well.
