Research Interests: 

My research interests concern aquatic ecosystems, both freshwater and marine. I am broadly interested in the effects of global change and other anthropological forces in relation to how they alter trophic structure. At Cornell, I plan to study changes within prey fish communities and how those relate to the food stability of upper trophic level species.
