The study of fish diversity and its conservation is a vibrant area of research from the population level to the recovery of evolutionary phylogenies. Using both morphological and molecular methods, graduate and undergraduate students in my lab are currently 1) investigating the population dynamics and genetics of sicydiine gobies, 2) studying genetic and morphological diversity of African amphiliid catfishes, gobies in the genus Bathygobius, and African pygmy sleepers (Kribia), 3) describing a new species of goby from Micronesia, and 4) constructing a GIS taxonomic and ecological database of the freshwater and mangrove fishes of Guinea, West Africa.
