I study how freshwater ecosystems respond to human activities and an ever-changing environment. My research with the University of Montana focuses on the ecology of rivers that cross international boundaries. I have a B.S. and M.S. in Aquatic and Fishery Sciences from the University of Washington. Since 2000, I have held fisheries biologist positions in government, private, and non-profit sectors. I am also currently working toward a PhD in Fisheries at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and expect to finish in 2021.
