Biography

Originally from SE Missouri, BS and MS from MU. MS thesis work focused on developing sampling protocols for freshwater mussel species in Missouri. Current project focuses on determining causes for decline and potential for reintroduction of mussels in the Little Black River, Missouri.

Research Interest

Monitoring and biometrics of benthic freshwater organisms.
