Research Interests:

I am currently working on my thesis which involves the taxonomy and early life history of larval and juvenile fishes within the genus Seriola with respect to their abundance in the Sargassum habitat. Early life history of these fishes and others would prove to be beneficial to the commercial and recreational fisheries. Although some identification has been done, information is scarce.
