Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted.  For more information, please see www.doi.gov/shutdown

Research Interests

I am an aquatic ecologist with the U.S. Geological Survey’s Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center in Bozeman, MT. My specific research focuses on understanding the ecosystem and community-level consequences of aquatic invasive species and testing new tools for the early detection of aquatic invasive species. My research program consists of a combination of field and laboratory studies.
