Research

My general approach to research is based on the fact that ecological systems are highly variable in space and time.  Thus,  I use a diverse set of quantitative tools and experimental designs depending upon the particular question being asked.  My research focus generally centers on how fish species and assemblages respond to disturbances.  Of particular interest to me are how modified flow regimes and habit fragmentation threaten freshwater biodiversity globally and affect native communities at varying spatial and temporal scales.
