Research Projects Highlights

I am broadly interested in aquatic ecology, especially as it pertains to fish and invertebrate communities. More specifically, I have worked on projects involving temporary wetland invertebrate communities, odonate ecology, riparian forestry practices, stream ecology, brook trout diets, and general surveys of invertebrates in wetlands. My areas of expertise are aquatic invertebrate taxonomy and multivariate community analyses.
