I am an aquatic ecologist with interests ranging from ecosystem-level physical processes to organismal biology and ecology.  I enjoy Louisiana and have spent my career working in the multitude of freshwater ecosystems throughout the state.  Although crayfish and fish are my principal research organisms, all biota in the aquatic realm pique my interest.  Take a couple of minutes to look around and contact me with any questions.
