Research Interests

My research is centered around the ecology and conservation of freshwater fishes with emphasis on the influence of altered flow conditions, invasive species, and other aspects of environmental change. I have worked on topics that include the management and recovery of endangered fishes in dryland rivers of the desert Southwest, the effects of low-head dams on stream habitat and fish community composition in the Great Plains, and the dynamics of fish communities in response to nonnative species and increasing hydrologic drought across the southwestern United States. My lab uses a variety of quantitative methods for building models of populations, spatial and compositional analysis of communities, and applying innovative techniques to understand dynamics in freshwater ecosystems.
