I am a fish ecologist currently employed as a postdoctoral research associate at the Illinois Natural History Survey in Havana, Illinois. My interests lie in a variety of areas including movement and migration ecology of fishes, chemical tracers, and population level consequences of connectivity. I have been fortunate to conduct my research in freshwater lakes and rivers in Michigan, estuarine rivers in Maine, the northern Gulf of Mexico, and now the Illinois River! Within these diverse ecosystems, I have studied the ecology of two different sturgeon species (the lake and shortnose sturgeons), a sciaenid (the Atlantic croaker), and am currently taking an ecosystem approach to understanding the consequences of hydrologic separation of the Illinois River from Lake Michigan on aquatic resources in the Illinois River valley.
