Description: 

The research program of my group is broadly defined by the ecology of aquatic communities, currently ranging from amphibian populations of California, the Pacific Northwest, and the far north, to the river and lake food webs that support salmon populations from California to Alaska. We rely heavily on field-based experimental manipulations to tease apart the mechanistic underpinnings of ecological patterns, from species physiology to food web interactions.
