My group works on the behavior, ecology, evolution, and conservation of fishes. Most of our work is conducted on salmon, trout and char, investigating such topics as migratory behavior and homing, habitat requirements, factors affecting reproductive success, evolution of populations, straying and population expansion, and trophic ecology. Our research blends a variety of field techniques including tagging, telemetry, direct observations, and a variety of sampling techniques with laboratory experiments and analysis of long-term datasets.
