I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Michigan in the School for Environment and Sustainability, working with Dr. Karen Alofs (lab website). I work with an interdisciplinary team (CHANGES project) to combine historical and contemporary data to investigate the effects of habitat and climate change of fish species across Michigan.
I received my PhD from Michigan State University in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, working in the Data intensive Landscape Limnology Lab with Dr. Kendra Spence Cheruvelil (https://bigdatalimno.org).
I am fisheries 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 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.
