I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Institute of Arctic Biology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks where I am working with Dr. Jeff Falke's Freshwater Fish Ecology Lab and the USGS Alaska Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit.
I've recently relocated from the Watershed Sciences Department and the Ecology Center at Utah State University where I was a post-doc with Dr. Jereme Gaeta's Lake Ecology Lab and completed my Ph.D. with Dr. Phaedra Budy's Fish Ecology Lab and the USGS Utah Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit.
I am an aquatic ecologist broadly interested in native species conservation, predator-prey interactions and food web dynamics, and how freshwater ecosystems respond to natural and anthropogenic disturbances.
Please use this site (a work in progress) to learn more about my research interests, and feel free to contact me at anytime.
