Areas of Specialization

Fish Ecology / Integrated Biological-Social Science Research / Using Science to Address Applied Conservation Problems

Professional Interests

Presently, I direct a program of research, education, and outreach-extension-service focused on fish ecology that addresses both basic science and applied conservation and restoration problems.


Specifically, I am interested in problems related to


(1) Basic ecological processes that structure freshwater and estuarine fish communities;


(2) Patterns, mechanisms, consequences of fish movements;


(3) Role of heterogeneity in ecological structure and function across scales (including the role of dams);


(4) Integrated, interdisciplinary, bio-social approaches to natural resource conflicts.
