My research interests lie in the interactions amongst biota, their interactions with their abiotic environment, and how this environment is shaped by local and global drivers, or disturbed by stressors (e.g., climate change, pollution, or land use changes). This requires me to think and work collaboratively across multiple disciplines, a challenge which I greatly enjoy.
I am currently the Senior Fisheries Biologist with the BC Ministry for FLNRORD for the Omineca Region, while continuing research on freshwater fish in BC and elsewhere as adjunct faculty at the University of Northern British Columbia. If you have a project idea or challenge, contact me!
