My research is on the reproductive and developmental aspects of the physiological ecology of fishes, with and application to aquaculture and natural resource management. Previous research included study of vitellogenesis in North American sturgeon fishes, effect of environmental temperature on female white sturgeon at late stages of ovarian maturation (ovarian follicular atresia), and partial isolation, characterization, and physiological function of white sturgeon gonadotropins. Currently my research focus is on the effects of environmental temperature and organic selenium on the survival and notochord development of white and green sturgeon during early ontogeny (embryo and larvae).
