I am a  faculty with a joint appointment between the Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society and the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Oregon State University.  I work in aquatic ecosystems and have a particular interest in aquatic-terrestrial linkages.  My research projects are broad though and encompass fish ecology, ecosystem ecology, invertebrate ecology, biogeochemistry, and stream restoration.
