I am a broadly trained aquatic ecologist with a strong interest in the behavioral ecology of fishes. My recent research addresses migration strategies, search behavior, habitat selection, and anti-predator behavior, as mediated by chemical information. I am very active in the development of practical, scientifically-sound, and innovative management tools to control invasive species and to achieve fish passage. I teach or have taught courses on Stream Ecology, Invasion Ecology, Effective Scientific Presentation, Principles and Perspectives in Fisheries and Wildlife, and the STEPPS specialization.
