University System: Montana State University - Bozeman
I am the Assistant Unit Leader of the U.S. Geological Survey-Montana Cooperative Fishery Research Unit (MTCFRU) at Montana State University. The Unit is housed in the Department of Ecology-Fish and Wildlife Management Program.
I design and conduct research funded by Federal, State, and private contracts and direct the research of graduate students and other personnel. I also lead research teams and serve as a bridge among resource managers and other researchers assuring appropriateness of research questions and hypotheses. The overall mission of the MTCFRU encompasses fish ecology, physiology, population dynamics, limnology, hydrology, wildlife, endangered species, habitat and landscape ecology, and environmental contaminants.
