- I am a PhD student in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Notre Dame and an EPA STAR Research Fellow. I am advised by Drs. Gary Lamberti and Dominic Chaloner. While at Notre Dame I have been funded by grants from the Great Lakes Fishery Trust and U.S. EPA. In addition, I frequently collaborate with Dr. Ashley Moerke from Lake Superior State University and Drs. Rick Rediske and Jim McNair from Grand Valley State University along with several biologists from both the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and US Fish and Wildlife Service. Prior to my doctoral work, I was a fisheries biologist with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources where I worked to rehabilitate native fish as part of the Upper Colorado River and San Juan River Recovery Programs. From 2009-2011, I conducted a master's thesis at the University of Florida studying the effects of dam operations on native fish in the Colorado River in Grand Canyon. I completed by B.S. from Lake Superior State University and as an undergraduate conducted research on sturgeon and salmon populations throughout the Great Lakes and Alaska.
