I am pleased to announce that I will be joining the Structure and Motion Lab at the Royal Veterinary College next year as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Research Fellow to work with John Hutchinson on estimating bone strength in models of stem tetrapods! Then in the Fall of 2017, I will be beginning an appointment as Assistant Professor of Comparative Physiology at California State University, Long Beach!
I will be accepting applications for Master's students in the Spring of 2017 to begin their graduate programs at CSULB in the Fall of 2017, so please direct any motivated students my way. I am particularly eager to find undergraduates ~ 1.5 years away from graduation who I could work with to write NSF GRFP applications this Fall (due Nov 2016) for their Master's research. More details will be uploaded to my website in the following months, so please share my website to any prospective students who are eager to address questions related to organismal physiology, functional morphology, biomechanics, and evolutionary ecology! Note: fishes will be the primary study taxa in my lab, but I am open to considering other systems if they better address the research question.
Thanks to everyone who has given me support and mentorship over the years! It's finally time to transfer all of the knowledge gleaned from my mentors and colleagues towards fostering the development of the next generation of scientists. I can't wait to start this exciting new chapter in my life, and join the CSULB family! Go Beach!
