Current Research Interests

I grew up swimming, sailing and fishing in lakes in my home state of Michigan and have always been interested in what lies beneath the surface. I received my B.S. in Geology at Indiana University and M.S. and Ph.D. in Zoology at the University of Wisconsin. My research focuses on how aquatic ecosystems respond to environmental change. I am also interested in science communication and am working on improving my skills in that area! At Fairfield, I teach Freshwater Ecology, Biology of Food, Ecology of the North Atlantic Coast, and General Biology. If you are a Fairfield undergraduate student interested in joining the lab, come find me in BNW 209 or email me at
