My name is Joseph and I am a scientist living in the Raleigh-Durham area. I have a strong background in marine and land ecology and a passion for nature and science which I feel does the most for the world when shared. Currently I will be teaching an Entomology (insect field studies) and I will be adding several other science courses such as marine biology, ecology, and geology in near future.
Below is a list of some of my accomplishments:
• Master’s in Marine Science (marine biology)
• Bachelors in Biology (ecology)
• Currently work for The Fish Barn (aquaculture research center at NCSU), Naturalist Center at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, and Science Periodically.
• Taught Introductory Marine Science and Intro to Earth Systems Science at North Carolina State University.
• Identified and published new species of marine turbellarians. This work won the Houk prize from Winthrop University.
• Managed and maintained Winthrop University’s museum insect collections.
• Expertise in marine and land ecology, molecular, microscopy and imaging, scientific presentations and reports, field sampling, laboratory safety management.
• Have worked with fish, birds of prey, frogs, sea anemones, turbellarians, insects, phytoplankton, zooplankton, turtles, and snakes.
• Experienced in relocating animals such as venomous snakes, non-venomous snakes, and all turtles.
