I received my B.S. degree in Wildlife & Fisheries Biology from Clemson University in spring of 2017. During my time there I participated in undergraduate research that ranged from topics of stream restoration and invasive plant removal, aquaponics, and stream fish ecology. My fisheries related research at Clemson focused on 1) stream fish growth, movement, and survival and 2) testing the efficiency of different gears for stream fish detection. Here at Iowa State I am working towards a M.S. degree involving locating remnant populations of native brook trout in the driftless region of Iowa. My overarching interests in fisheries include stream fish ecology & biology, fisheries management & conservation, and habitat connectivity.
