Research Area

I direct the Marine Health Program at CMAST, and conduct clinically applied research on health and diseases of aquatic and nondomestic species in the course of delivering veterinary services and support at the NC Aquariums, the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center, marine mammal and sea turtle stranding networks, area research aquaculture facilities, and our Morehead City/Beaufort area marine laboratories.

Recent work has included identification of novel and emerging aquatic animal pathogens, meeting unique anesthetic challenges for in-water sensory biology research, assessing and mitigating physiologic impact of capture techniques for wildlife research, welfare concerns for stranded large whales, and pharmacokinetics in nondomestic species.
