I am a fish biologist based out of the Hammond Bay Biological Station in Millersburg, MI. My research interests lie in better understanding fish ecology, behavior, and physiology to inform the management and restoration of native species in the Great Lakes basin.

I began working at the Great Lakes Science Center - Hammond Bay Biological Station in 2022, following the completion of my M.S. at Michigan State University where I studied the spatial and thermal ecology of lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush). My research focuses on conducting science to inform and support the management of native species. Currently, I study fish movement ecology, behavior, and population structure, often using acoustic telemetry tracking technology, and investigate improvements to the application of fish tracking technology in the Great Lakes.
