1990 B.A., Environmental Biology, St. Mary’s University, Minnesota
As a research fisheries biologist in the Invasive Species team, I lead research on the development of chemical fishery management tools for controlling aquatic invasive species. Research includes development of new oral delivery platforms and treatment methods for controlling filter feeding aquatic invasive species such as Hypophthalmichthys carp (bighead and silver) and Dreissenid mussels (zebra and quagga).
