I am currently a PhD candidate at Michigan State University in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife. I work in the Data intensive Landscape Limnology Lab under Dr. Kendra Spence Cheruvelil (https://bigdatalimno.org).
I am an aquatic ecologist and data-intensive scientist who works collaboratively to examine the roles that disturbance (human and natural) has on lake, stream, and wetland biology and chemistry across broad spatial scales. My main areas of interest include examining a) aquatic ecosystem state through the study of nutrients, macroinvertebrates, and fish and b) the role of hydrologic connections within the landscape on freshwater ecosystem state. I hope that my research questions will be applicable to freshwater resource management and conservation.
