Research Interests/Objectives:

GroganI take an integrative approach (fossil and extant) to the study of the origin and relationships of chondrichthyan fishes, and of the origin and evolution of early vertebrates. Emphasis is placed on the functional and developmental morphology of the cranium, suspensorium, mineralized tissues and the immune and vascular systems. Studies in progress involve ontogenetic and phylogenetic differentiation of the cranium, the development and mineralization of skeletal tissues, the description of new Bear Gulch fishes, and cladistic analyses of the Paleozoic fishes.
