I am a Postdoctoral Researcher studying freshwater ecosystems (especially streams). I use theoretical and empirical approaches to address basic ecological questions and to better manage ecosystems. My research interests span across a wide range of taxa (mussel, fish, arthropod, bird, plant), but are all tied together by a common thread in which to tackle the causes and consequences of spatial ecological interactions, such as  dispersal.
