  • Degree Sought: PHD
  • Graduate Advisor(s): Schulz
  • Area of Study: Environmental & Forest Biology

Graduate Research Topic
My research is focused on invasive freshwater mussels in Skaneateles Lake, NY. I am working towards automated counting methods using underwater photography, with the count data being used to support a water quality modeling effort that is part of the development of a NYSDEC Nine-Element Plan for Skaneaateles Lake and its watershed. I hope to shed light on the important impacts of invasive mussels with respect to water quality and development of HAB's.

Graduate Research Topic
I'm interested in examining the effects of the invasive macroalga Nitellopsis obtusa (starry stonewort) on the epiphytic community of New York lakes. This aquatic invasive species has recently been spreading in New York and across the Great Lakes Region in the US and Canada. It often forms dense monocultures by outcompeting and displacing native macrophyte species. Previous research has primarily focused on the distribution of starry stonewort, but little has explored its potential ecological impacts.
