During my Bachelor of Science at The University or West Florida I studied the marine science with a primary focus in ichthyology. This lead to international studies of with a primary focus on the sense of electroreception. In 2002, I obtained a Doctor of Philosophy at the Centre for Marine Studies within The University of Queensland while working on a project entitled ‘Biological Electrical Field Sensors’ for the Australian Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO). This project and additional research with the Australian DSTO focused on electroreception and passive electrical fields within coastal waterways and the ampullae of Lorenzini in elasmobranchs and catfish that allow fish to detect and use these electrical fields in various ways. Currently, I work as a Research Manager and cooridinate operations of the Facility of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences Histology Facility and co-supervisie a number of post graduate research scientists with a primary focus on electroreception and the ampullae of Lorenzini.
