Teaching Schedule

My teaching schedule varies from semester to semester and year to year. So far during my time at UW I co-taught the biomechanics course with Tom Daniel. I also gave guest lectures for undergraduates in biology (Marine Biology) and Oceanography (Marine Biology) and for graduate students in the SAFS core course.

In addition, I taught a small field course in Panama for undergraduates from the University of Toronto.
 

Upcoming Courses

I will be teaching again on the UW Seattle Campus in the Spring of 2011. Details will be announced here.
 

Current Courses

Every other other summer I teach a research class at FHL. In the summer of 2012 I am once again teaching a five week course on the functional morphology of fishes here at Friday Harbor Labs with my colleagues Larra Ferry and Dominique Adriaens.

The course will use the diverse marine fish community of the San Juan Islands as a tool to explore the relationship between functional morphology and ecology. Students in the course will learn: 1) the evolutionary history and relationships of the major radiations of bony and cartilaginous fishes; 2) basic ecological principles as they relate to fish biology; 3) tools and techniques for collecting fishes; 4) basic morphology of cartilaginous and bony fishes; 5) tools and techniques of functional morphology.

More information is available on the FHL website.
