Research Interests

Aquatic invasive species
Dreissenid mussel ecology
Benthic Ecology

I assist with several projects which focus on dreissenid mussels regarding their growth, distribution, and reproductive capabilities, specifically with GLERL's long-term benthic monitoring program. Additionally, I contribute to data collection for the Cooperative Science and Monitoring Initiative research surveys. I also provide lab, field, and data visualization support when necessary.
