Dr. Dennis Slice's scientific background is in Marine Biology, and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. He received his B.Sc. in Marine Biology in the Department of Biology at the College of Charleston in 1984 and his Ph.D. in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at the State University of New York at Stony Brook (now Stony Brook University) in 1993. Throughout both his undergraduate and graduate career, he was heavily involved in the development of computer applications for scientific research. At Stony Brook, he began working on morphometric problems with F. James Rohlf and has been working in this area ever since. In addition, he has been a guest professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Vienna, Austria since 2000. Dr. Slice's research usually involves the identification of problems of individual researchers in specialized fields and the development of general methods to solve those particular problems and the incorporation of those methods into software for general distribution and use. This has led to his collaboratio with leading researchers in such fields as forensics, orthodontics, evolutionary biology, biomedical engineering, paleoanthropology, evolutionary psychology, industrial hygiene, and marine biology, to name a few.
