My research efforts are directed towards the management of aquatic ecosystems - with a particular emphasis on managing freshwater fish populations.
The overall goal of my research program is to understand ecological interactions regulating the abundance of key aquatic organisms, such as sport fish, nuisance invaders and rare species. These studies are designed to either identify ways to manage the abundance of these organisms or to understand factors that limit our capacity for their management.
I regularly provide training for resource managers, scientists, and the public based on my applied research efforts regarding the management of fishery and aquatic resources. These training efforts address fisheries management in waters ranging in size from ponds to the Great Lakes, as well as the management of lake and stream habitats and water quality.
I provide instruction in stream ecology and environmental policy, as well as graduate instruction in the role of science in natural resource management & conservation. In 2013 I began teaching data management and organization to graduate students.
