Personal Statement
My interests in Fish and Wildlife Management are habitat assessment and management of aquatic systems. Prior to ESF I have worked in the Adirondack State Park and St. Lawrence River Valley assessing Methylmercury in popular sports fish as well as the effects of Methlymercury on predatory escape response times in larvae fish. More recently, I have worked for the federal agencies in Colorado and Oregon working on habitat restoration projects in high desert rivers and streams as well as increasing wildlife habitat and connectivity in mountain pass corridors.

Graduate Research Topic
I am in the process of solidifying a topic of research focused around fish response to implemented and existing habitat structure in Onondaga Lake.
