- Ph.D., University of Maryland, 1964
I accept only Masters students. My work focuses primarily (but not exclusively) on marine turtles but I’ll consider sponsoring any behaviorally interesting project as long as it’s done with a suitable marine subject. My primary interests are in sensory biology, behavioral development, orientation, migration, biological rhythms, habitat selection, anti-predator adaptations and the management of marine turtle nesting beaches.
