Taylor Brown



Taylor is a PhD candidate co-advised by Drs. Suresh Sethi and Lars Rudstam in the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment. She is a member of both the New York Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit and the Cornell Biological Field Station at Shackelton Point. Her dissertation research largely focuses on disentangling the biophysical drivers of recruitment variability for cisco and lake whitefish across the Great Lakes.

Taylor previously completed her M.S. from Cornell University, which focused on the contemporary spatial extent and environmental drivers of coregonine spawning habitat across Lake Ontario. Prior to Cornell, she earned her B.S. from The Ohio State University, where she studied predator-prey space use and walleye metapopulation dynamics in Lake Erie. Taylor is originally from Napoleon, Ohio and completed her A.S at Northwest State Community College.
