M.S. Oceanography and Coastal Science, Louisiana State University


Research Interests: My research interests revolve around aquatic habitat restoration and the conservation of native fish species. I am currently working to quantify the effects of dam removal on stream water quality, macroinvertebrates, and fishes across Massachusetts. I am also interested in incorporating resource management goals and stakeholder engagement to improve both ecological and socio-economic resilience to climate change impacts.
