I am a biologist interested in the ecology and conservation of freshwater ecosystems. I am specifically interested in studying multiple, interacting levels of freshwater systems: from species interactions to food webs and whole-ecosystem processes. I use several different approaches to address these research interests, including field surveys, experiments, and ecological modeling.
For my post-doctoral work, I am a David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellow. My project addresses floodplain ecosystems, with the goal of improving restoration efforts. I’m working with Angela Strecker at Portland State, Marc Hayes at WA Department of Fish and Wildlife, and Mike Adams at USGS.
