My research focuses on freshwater fishes and biodiversity. My research focuses on three general areas: 1) understanding the mechanisms relating to species loss, especially in relation to anthropogenic disturbance like land-use change, hydrologic alteration, climate change, invasive species and their impacts to freshwater ecosystems; 2) developing better aquatic assessment methods, including how to measure global change; and, 3) developing methods to improve restoration and reclamation. As a member of Tracking change, I provide support for graduate students and community researchers in the project.
