Graduate Students

Research opportunities are open on a continuing basis for students seeking Masters or Doctoral degree in aquatic ecology (fundamental ecological questions) and freshwater environmental biology (more applied research questions). If you’re interested in discussing a graduate program in my lab after reviewing my research interests and graduate student philosophy and if you believe you have the academic preparation to be accepted in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, I encourage you to contact me for more information.
