About

I am a stream fish ecologist with interests in conservation, flow ecology, population and community modeling, and relationships between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.  Some examples of my research include quantifying nutrient inputs from and ecosystem responses to migratory freshwater fishes, developing dynamic multistate models to relate stream fish population dynamics to hydrologic variability, and using fish communities to assess the ecological integrity of streams.
