  • General biology of Cirripedia, reproduction, and morphology
  • Phylogeny and evolution of shore barnacles and coral-inhabiting barnacles
  • Symbiotic relationships in coral reefs - energy transfer between corals and their symbionts
  • Environmental physiology of intertidal invertebrates in tropical waters:  attention is given to environmental pressures due to exposure to air, i.e., desiccation, high temperature, high radiation, and lack of oxygen
