I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate working with CRITFC and the USFS to better understand how past restoration efforts have influenced a major tributary of the upper Grande Ronde River. Prior to working for CRITFC, I studied Ecosystem Science at Colorado State University and received my PhD in Aquatic Ecology from Utah State University along with working for various state and federal agencies.

My research interests center on the nexus between the restoration of riverscapes and the populations that depend upon them — namely I’ve worked with fishes, amphibians, and trees. I integrate a variety of data and analytical methods to assess the efficacy of restoration actions using an ecosystem-based approach to detect changes to organisms’ habitats and vital rates. My current research focuses on evaluating the influence of 40 years of restoration efforts on fish communities and their habitat within the Meadow Creek watershed of the upper Grande Ronde River basin.

In my downtime, I enjoy mountain biking, snowboarding, photography, and cooking!
