Joshua Moyer specializes in the biology of elasmobranch fishes (sharks, skates, and rays). After completing his Bachelors of Science with Departmental Honors in Biology at Millersville University of Pennsylvania, Joshua earned his Masters of Science from Cornell University, where he studied the comparative anatomy of the jaws and teeth of White Sharks and their relatives. Joshua is currently a doctoral candidate in Organismal and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where he is studying anatomy and function of shark feeding.
Joshua has co-authored papers on shark dentitions and teaches college courses in marine biology, evolution, and vertebrate anatomy. A member of the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists (ASIH) and the American Elasmobranch Society (AES), Joshua enjoys visiting shark localities wherever they may be and working with the many people who share his love of these fascinating fishes.
