Research Interests

Generally, my research interests involve disturbance ecology, water quality, aquatic biodiversity, and the human-environment interaction. As a molecular ecologist, I use environmental DNA to understand aquatic community responses to ecosystem disturbances, both natural and anthropogenic. When possible, I try to incorporate a human dimension into my research and feel especially passionate about working with communities and decision makers to reduce our environmental footprint and improve human health and well-being
