Especially human genetics, genetic epidemiology application ofgenetic methodologies to conservation biology problems and in the managementof rare and endangered species in zoos and in the wild. 

Natural History: 
 The breeding and social behavior of the South American Titi monkey(Callicebus moloch), the Owl monkey (Aotus trivirgatus),and Goeldi's marmoset (Callimico goeldii). Natural history, breedingand maturation of captive Louisiana milk snakes (Lampropeltis triangulumamaura). Natural history, genetics, and captive propagation of thebog turtle (Clemmys muhlenbergi) and spotted turtle (Clemmysguttata) as well as population and toxicology studies employing thesnapping turtle (Chelydra serpentina). 

 I am keenly interested in evolutionary processes including speciation,sub-specific variability, isolating mechanisms, and the impact of humanactivities on natural habitats.
