I am an aquatic ecologist with broad interests within the fields of freshwater fish ecology, and community and evolutionary ecology. In particular, I am interested in understanding the mechanisms structuring ecological communities across spatial and temporal scales and quantifying such relationships. I use both natural and human-impacted freshwater ecosystems to investigates how environmental, historical, and anthropogenic factors influence community organization, food-web structure, and ecosystem functions.
I use fishes as model organisms to understand how communities are structured, altered, and can be restored. My research program is field-based oriented and given the diversity of freshwater systems I work in, my research uses multiple integrative techniques (e.g., stoichiometry, stable isotopes, dietary analysis, morphological traits, null models) and combines descriptive, quantitative, and experimental approaches.
