Research

My research interests are broadly in the field of freshwater ecology and span a breadth of topics from population genetics to community ecology. Like many naturalists, I grew up around my study system, freshwater lakes, and have always found these ecosystems to be particularly fascinating. Freshwater ecosystems provide a wealth of vital services to society, but are also some of the most undervalued and threatened systems on Earth. As such, my research is geared towards building a better of understanding how freshwater ecosystems operate in the face of anthropogenic disturbance and how effective our efforts are to maintain or restore these systems. Here are links to summaries of some of the research that I have been involved in:

Conservation Genetics of Waterbirds
Largemouth Bass Population Dynamics
Quantifying the Resilience of Aquatic Ecosystems
Informing Species at Risk Recovery Efforts
