My research focuses on ecosystem processes that influence coldwater fisheries; with primary interest in native salmoinds of the Adirondack Mountain region including brook trout, lake trout, and round whitefish. My current research examines (1) the role of movements and food webs in sustaining salmonid populations; (2) the impacts of acid precipitation, climate change and non-native fish introductions on native fish populations; and (3) management practices to restore, conserve, and protect native fish populations in Adirondack waters.
