... For much of the report preparation, he served as the Stewart Schneller Endowed Chair and Alumni Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Auburn University where also served as the Marine Biology Program Coordinator. His research interests include marine invertebrate evolution, phylogeography, evolutionary origins and relationships of major metazoan lineages, and diversification of chemosynthetic fauna.
