I work as fish biologist at the USGS, Columbia River Research Laboratory (CRRL). I began working at the CRRL in in 1998. My work has primarily focused on salmon and dams in the Pacific Northwest. Most of this work has utilized acoustic telemetry systems or acoustic cameras to monitor behavior and abundance of fish.

Much of my work has focused on juvenile salmon migrating downstream through high head hydroelectric dams with acoustic telemetry and acoustic cameras. Recent work has included acoustic telemetry studies to evaluate fish deterrent structures near navigation locks in the Midwest and developing methods to process acoustic camera data.
