I am a freshwater ecologist who is broadly interested in linking measurements of ecosystem structure and function, and predicting how future changes in climate and land use could change how ecosystems operate. I work in streams, rivers, lakes, and reservoirs, both in the field and in modeling space. I am also interested in the roles that animals, from macroinvertebrates to fishes (and humans!), play in mediating ecosystem processes in different aquatic environments.
I am currently a postdoctoral associate with the Carey Lab at Virginia Tech, where I'm working on a number of projects related to ecosystem processes in lakes and reservoirs.
In addition to research, I enjoy teaching and curriculum development, participating in community outreach activities, and writing about science.
