Ecologist, U.S. Geological Survey
I am currently working collaboratively to assess the ecological resilience of the Upper Mississippi River System. This work includes an evaluation of controlling variables and the development of system-wide indicators of resilience derived from long-term datasets. The motivation behind this work is to better understand how management and restoration actions can be strategically applied to influence the long-term resilience of the system.
Key research Interests: large floodplain river ecology, watershed science, ecological resilience
