Current Research Interests 

My research, and that of my students, focuses on the ecology of fishes and the organisms with which they interact, in boreal and arctic lakes and streams, addressing the general question: what factors of the northern environment affect the ecology of fishes at the individual, population and community levels? Laboratory and field experiments are combined with broad-scale comparisons in studies of community organization, population dynamics and life history. I am also often approached by industry or government regarding other, applied projects focusing on boreal/arctic lakes and streams. These projects typically develop unpredictably, so please check the graduate student link (right) and/or contact me to learn about current graduate student opportunities.
