I have a M.S. in entomology from the University of Kentucky, B.S. in Biology from the University of Minnesota, Duluth. Prior to moving to Juneau I managed a field team researching the invasive signal crayfish in Kodiak, AK. Here at Ted Stevens Marine Research Institute I do various lab work including bomb calorimetry, wet and dry homogenization, collection of morphometrics, diet content analysis, and have been developing methods for stable isotopes analysis of eye lens laminae in various fish species.
