Richard D Squire


I retired from The University of Puerto Rico - Mayaguez's Biology Department in December 2007 after 29.5 years of service. While there I taught undergraduate and graduate courses in General Biology, Genetics, and Research. Before that I taught at 3 Colleges in New York City and was a Post Doctoral Research Fellow in Human Cytogenetics at Cornell University Medical College. My research has primarily involved the Genetics and Radiation Biology of the Brine Shrimp, Artemia franciscana. I have also conducted some unpublished studies with the guppy, Poecilia reticulata. I have proof-read several books and articles on Guppy Genetics.
