I joined the faculty of Queens College as a tenured professor of Biology in 2004.  For the previous twenty years I was employed by the Hudson River Foundation for Science and Environmental Research, most recently as Senior Scientist. I received my Ph.D. in 1986 from the Joint Program in Evolutionary Biology between the American Museum of Natural History and the City University of New York, and prior to that an M.S. in Marine and Environmental Sciences from Long Island University.

As an aquatic conservation biologist I've authored more than 90 scientific articles and several popular books, in addition to a number of scientific volumes. I've also been an occasional contributor to the New York Times and other periodicals. 

My concern for the watery world sprang from my growing up playing on Long Island Sound in the Bronx.  Today, I live with my family--again not too far from the shore--in Sea Cliff, NY.
