Research Description: Basic Research Interests 1. Comparative analyses of signaling networks that control the timing of metamorphosis among marine invertebrate larvae. Linking the nature and function of those networks to juvenile ecology, in an explicit comparative framework 2. Larval functional morphology, neural development and chemosensation, mostly on echinoderms 3. Origin of the neural crest, using tunicates as an outgroup. 4. The nature of a novel endosymbiotic association between the salamander Amblystomatis maculatum and the green alga Oophila ambystomatis Applied Research Interests: 1. Development of novel anti-fouling technologies, in collaboration with biologists, chemists and physicists
