I am an Assistant Professor of Biology at Howard University. I have broad interests in evolutionary and functional morphology of vertebrates. I currently study the diversity and biomechanics of gill chambers in fishes.

I was previously a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University funded by an NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Biology to work in the Museum of Comparative Zoology and in the Lauder Laboratory.  Prior to that, I was a graduate student in the laboratory of Dr. Willy Bemis in Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at Cornell University.  Check out EEB's diversity recruitment event for URM undergraduates interested in biology graduate school.
