I am a fish community ecologist and the general theme of all of my research has been exploring the links between fish and their environment. I have numerous ongoing research projects including 1) the effects of anthropogenic nitrate enrichment on species composition, richness, and density of fish in freshwater springs in Florida, 2) the role of rockweed harvesting on coastal finfish and lobster fisheries of Maine, 3) the influence of alewife restoration on native littoral fish species and 4) a comparison of cyprinid populations among mainland and island ponds.
