Areas of Specialization
/ Integrated Biological-Social Science Research
/ Using Science to Address Applied Conservation Problems
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.
