I believe that scientific findings from shared resources should be made accessible to everyone. Thus, I do my best to publish open access — making my work available free of charge. Please feel free to contact me if you have trouble accessing any of the publications linked below.

The projects synthesized below were highly please be sure to check out the acknowledgments sections, which credit people who were involved in the work but not listed as coauthors. Please also CLICK HERE for a list of interns, research assistants, and technicians who have helped me along the way. Many are also highlighted in the PHOTO GALLERY.
