Dissertation/thesis title: River herring conservation in freshwater: Investigating fish reproductive success and the educational value of citizen monitoring programs

Research Interests

I am interested in anadromous fish biology, particularly in relation to economically and ecologically important species. My work focuses on elucidating reproductive strategies in anadromous alewife, a species of concern with economic, ecological, and cultural importance in New England, and is conducted in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Marine Fisheries. Additionally, I am interested in science outreach and policy and am studying the educational value citizen science programs through a collaboration with an alewife related citizen science program at the Mystic River Watershed Association in Arlington, MA.
