My career interests have always centered on two things:  the fascinating world around us, and how people learn about it.  These interests have taken me to very interesting places, including time spent teaching at the New England Aquarium in Boston, working at a wonderful charter school on the coast of North Carolina, researching dolphins in Sarasota, and now here to Bowdoin.  In addition to teaching the Biology of Marine Organisms and Evolution labs, I also spend my summers at the Bowdoin Scientific Station on Kent Island (http://bowdoin.edu/kent-island/) and I write the blog An Ocean Lover in Maine (http://maineoceanlover.blogspot.com).
