I am a Research Professor Emeritus of Marine Sciences and serve as the Science Director of the Northeast Underwater Research Technology & Education Center (NURTEC). I also hold an appointment as a Senior Research Scientist at Mystic Aquarium. My research focuses on the ecology and conservation of fishes. This work has allowed me to participate as scientist or chief-scientist on over 60 major research cruises and a multitude of shore-based projects in the northwest Atlantic, Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, Caribbean Sea, South China Sea, Indian Ocean, Sea of Cortez, and in the equatorial Pacific.
