Biography

I'm from Duluth, MN, but spent every summer with my family at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA. This led to my interest in fish, research, and education, and following my undergrad, I worked as a fisheries observer across southern New England. I played football, hockey, and lacrosse in college, but now enjoy hiking and fishing.

Research Interest

My research focuses on modeling the timing of adult American eel downstream migration and assessing survival through hydroelectric facilities in the Penobscot River.
