Biography

I joined the Massachusetts Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit in 2012, where I served as Assistant Unit Leader of Fisheries for 8 years before becoming the Unit Leader in 2020. My office is in the Department of Environmental Conservation at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst where I am an Adjunct Research Associate Professor.

Teaching Interest

At the University of Massachusetts Amherst, I teach Research Concepts for first-year graduate students and Aquatic Ecology for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. From 2015-2019, I also co-organized a year-long Dam Removal Practicum for 10 graduate and undergraduate students in Environmental Conservation and Engineering.

Research Interest

My research broadly revolves around characterizing anthropogenic impacts on aquatic ecosystems and identifying conservation strategies for effectively protecting and restoring watersheds. The growing human population continues to constrain biotic assemblages in a variety of ways, and understanding the mechanisms by which urbanization and its associated stressors result in degraded fish and macroinvertebrate assemblages is an overarching challenge of my research program. I examine effects of altered hydrology, temperature, habitat, water quality, and food resources on biota (fishes, macroinvertebrates, freshwater mussels) and assess responses of aquatic ecosystems to restoration (e.g., forested riparian buffers, green infrastructure, dam removal).
