Kasey Pregler, PhD

Assistant Unit Leader - New Mexico Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit.

Kasey completed her undergraduate and master of science degrees at the University of Connecticut, and received her Ph.D. from Colorado State University. Prior to arriving at New Mexico State University, Kasey was a Chancellor’s postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley.

Dr. Pregler’s research program uses demographic and genetic data to answer questions in ecology, evolution, and conservation biology of freshwater fishes. To that end her research centers on three main themes: (1) understanding and mitigating threats to small, fragmented populations, (2) ecological and evolutionary impacts following management interventions, & (3) environmental drivers of fish population dynamics.

Taxon groups studied: Anadromous Fishes, Freshwater Fishes, Salmonids
