Classes taught:

  • BIOL 452 Freshwater Biology
  • BIOL 453 Streams Ecology


Research Interests:

My research interests focus predominantly on aquatic systems including: aquatic invasive species,  the evolutionary consequences of hybridization in fishes, population genetics of native fishes, molluscs and herpetofauna, conservation genetics, native fish dynamics and demographics, stream/large river ecology and management, and long-term resource monitoring.
