Clinical Sciences
I teach, see patients, and perform research on a wide variety of non-domestic species, both in the wild, and captivity. My special areas of interests are invertebrate zoology and conservation biology with a veterinary/health bent. I love teaching veterinary students and introducing them to new and exciting opportunities.
