My research program is broadly focused on applied aquatic ecology with an emphasis on fishes. In general, my work aims to fill critical data gaps needed by fisheries and water resource managers to implement effective restoration and conservation measures for imperiled species and ecosystems. In particular, my work has focused on how aquatic ecosystems function at varying spatio-temporal scales and how this influences species-habitat relationships. Recent and active study topics span the range of life history studies of threatened and endangered species to the role of climate variability and climate change on species and communities. I presently oversee (supervise and mentor) a team of eleven individuals, including five biologists (GS12, GS9, and GS7 levels) and six biological science technicians (GS7 and GS5 level). I work closely with scientists in other disciplines to tackle science challenges with comprehensive, interdisciplinary research. A particular strength of my research program is the ability to develop new technology and tools to generate novel solutions for difficult natural resource problems.
