My fascination with water and fish
started as a young child when fishing and exploring the water's edge at my
grandparents' cottages here in Wisconsin. I was amazed and intrigued by the
wide variety of fish, lakes and rivers during incredible fishing and outdoor
family trips to Alaska, Canada and "Out West." During an
"Aquatic Biology" undergraduate course I realized I could turn my
passion into a career, and it's one that I thoroughly enjoy.
I teach a variety of
Fisheries courses and lab sections for Introduction to Soil and Water. My research interests include fish population dynamics, habitat, movement and
migrations and novel research techniques.
