Research Interest

Christine’s current research is focused the physiology and health of iteroparous and semelparous salmonids, invasive aquatic species in hatcheries and in field settings, and methods to assess resource use and sustainable aquaculture production. This research is conducted at multiple scales from the individual organism in the lab to geospatial settings of populations
