- Currently, I am conducting avian diversity studies for an energy company that is planning to develop a wind generator plant near West Galveston Bay. In past years, students have enrolled in independent study courses that involved a variety of research interests.
1. Gender determination in birds using DNA fingerprinting technology
2. Analysis of organics extracted from the Galveston Ship Channel using GC
3. An analysis of bird diversity was conducted on the 6 study sites surveyed in the Field Ornithology Course.
