My interests are in fish ecology, more specifically in the dynamics of estuarine fishes and assemblages. Presently, my doctoral research is focused on the life history attributes (diet, age, growth, reproduction, and movements) of longnose gar, Lepisosteus osseus
, in the tidal portions of the tributaries of Chesapeake Bay.
