Research Interest

My broad areas of interest are ecology and evolution within aquatic systems, focused largely on fishes. The influence of abiotic and geographic factors on community structure and life history traits are topics I am currently investigating. I have also examined the evolution of reproductive morphologies and behaviors in stream fishes in the past so I appreciate the fusion of ecological and phylogenetic research. Ultimately, I hope to apply these interests to help work towards forward-thinking water conservation and habitat restoration strategies.
