Ecology, Fish Ecology, Stream Ecology
I study the ecology and conservation of stream and terrestrial ecosystems. I use population,
community, behavioral and food web ecology to 1) guide conservation of freshwater
species, and 2) understand how species loss, species introductions, and pollution
affect food webs within and across ecological boundaries.
