I recently completed my MS in Biological Sciences at Michigan Technological University in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. My thesis assessed the impacts of copper mine tailings (stamp sand) on the survival and early development of lake sturgeon, lake trout, and Northern leopard frogs in the Keweenaw Region. My BS is in Wildlife Ecology - Natural Resources from the University of Wisconsin - Madison.

I am interested in researching the influence invasive species have, or can potentially have, in Nebraska’s rivers and reservoirs, specifically focusing on zebra mussels. Other research interests include changes in water quality and biodiversity due to anthropogenic stressors, ecosystem resilience, adaptive management, and fisheries ecology.
