Broadly, I am interested in how nervous systems evolve to create novel behavioral patterns. I have studied locomotion in nudibranch gastropods (sea slugs) and sensory neurons in leeches. My research involves quantifying animal behavioral patterns in different species, identifying neurons that underlie those behaviors, and comparing the features of those neurons in different species. Below is a link to the current projects I am working on. If you are interested in gaining research experience studying invertebrate behavior and nervous systems, please come talk to me!

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the Western Oregon University site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
