Research Interests:

My research interests encompass the fields of physiology, ecology, and behavior as they relate to the conservation of freshwater fishes. I am currently researching supplementation methodologies for the critically endangered Delta Smelt and how stress markers can be used to optimize acclimatization and release of Delta Smelt in the Sacramento River Delta. My past research and work experience includes studying thermal tolerance in wild and hatchery-raised brook trout at Cornell University, salmon and steelhead monitoring with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, and stream habitat surveys for the Bureau of Land Management in southern Idaho. In my free time I love to fly fish, snowboard, and see live music.
