Research Interests:
My research focuses on the role of predation risk, competition, and abiotic factors in structuring foodwebs in aquatic systems. I am particularly interested in how fish optimize their habitat selection and diet in the face of competitive and predatory pressures, and how changes in habitat selection or diet by a species affects (directly or indirectly) other species in the system. In addressing these issues, I use basic ecological theory as a framework for addressing contemporary issues in fish management and aquatic ecology, using both laboratory and field experiments.
