Biography

I serve as the Unit Leader of the South Dakota Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit. My research interests include feeding ecology and energetics of fishes, and my students and I are currently working on trout management in the Black Hills, and pallid sturgeon ecology in the Missouri River. Originally from Virginia, I attended the University of Idaho (Ph.D.), West Virginia University (M.S.) and Davis & Elkins College (B.S.).

Teaching Interest

I teach graduate-level courses in Aquatic Trophic Ecology and Fish Bioenergetics at South Dakota State University.

Research Interest

My research focuses primarily on the feeding ecology and bioenergetics of fishes. My students and I use quantitative tools such as energy budgets, diet analysis, stable isotopes, and foraging models to help address fisheries management questions.
