I am an associate professor at Juniata College, and direct the new program in Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences. Students following the course requirements of this degree program can earn certification by the American Fisheries Society (AFS) as an Associate Fisheries Professional.
My interests are in aquatic sciences, ecology, and quantitative analysis techniques. My research has been mostly in stream ecology and watershed conservation. Community ecology of stream fishes and benthic invertebrates along with assessing stream ecosystem integrity are my specialties. My avocations include hunting and fishing. Please email me with any questions you might have about this new degree program, AFS, research, or aquatic ecosystems in general.
