This is temporarily linked to from the FSU site until I can produce some proper lab/research pages.
I like the fact that text-based media allow folks to interact without being influenced by personal appearance. Nevertheless,

Ph.D. 1993. State University of New York (SUNY), Stony Brook, NY; Department of Ecology and Evolution. Extensions, Comparisons,
and Applications of Superimposition Methods for Morphometric Analysis.
B.S. 1984. College of Charleston, Charleston, SC; Major in Marine Biology.
My latest research project involves the development of methods, tools, and reference data to use geometric morphometrics to
characterize unidentified human remains. This work is in collaboration with Ann Ross at North Carolina State University and
the University of Florida's C. A. Pound Human Identification Lab. It is funded by the U.S. National Institute of Justice.
My other research includes the development of biofidelic head models for engineering studies and the modeling of age- and
disease-related changes in the geometry of the human thorax.
In addition, I am involved in many collaborative projects with students and researchers in the fields of forensics, physical
and paleo- anthropology, vertebrate biology, and entomology.
