Stemming from my undergraduate work on newt olfaction, I am also working with Dr. Melanie Stiassny to characterize the unique olfactory mechanisms of Claroteid catfishes (subfamily Auchenoglanidinae) from the Congo River Basin. I have long been interested in histological laboratory techniques, and this work combines serial sectioning, histological staining, and soft tissue CT scanning.
