I serve as the Assistant Unit Leader of the Tennessee Fisheries Cooperative Research Unit. I am originally from Virginia, and my degrees are from Bard College at Simon's Rock, the University of Florida, and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. I have held positions with the U.S. Forest Service Boise Aquatic Sciences Laboratory, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the Missouri Fisheries and Wildlife Cooperative Research Unit.

Research Interest

Rosenberger's research interests are in the ecology and conservation of freshwater species, including fish, crayfish, and mussels, with an emphasis on the role of ecological processes in shaping aquatic species' distributions, population characteristics, and community structure. Conservation problems are best addressed at multiple scales; therefore, she is interested in the spatial and temporal dynamics of these patterns at both local and landscape scales. She is particularly interested in investigating mechanistic relationships between aquatic organisms and physical and biotic features of the environment and how human intervention, nonnative species, and climate change can alter those relationships. Underlying all of the research she has pursued is a strong drive to inform management decision-making geared towards conservation of threatened aquatic populations.
