I grew up in a small town in upstate New York. After completing my undergraduate degree, I worked a number of fisheries technician jobs throughout the western United States. I am now continuing to pursue my interests in fisheries ecology and management by working toward's my Master's degree. Outside of academics, I enjoy spending my time outdoors.

Research Interest

I am characterizing the energetic costs of fish passage delays at dams to upstream migrating adult Atlantic Salmon using bioenergetics modeling. The focus of my work is on the Penobscot and Kennebec Rivers.
