Research

My interests focus around population ecology and genetics of aquatic organisms and evaluating how both anthropogenic and natural changes affect animal behavior and population structure. My current research uses molecular techniques to assess how the numerous causeways in Lake Champlain have impacted fish movement. We hypothesize that causeways have effectively divided Lake Champlain into 3-5 distinct basins resulting in fragmented fish populations by limiting fish movement around the lake and potentially leading to decreased gene flow within common lake species.
