Data Development Specialist (ITIS/USGS)

My research interests lie in the ecology, biology, systematics, population genetics, and zoogeography of fishes. I currently work with the USGS Nonindigenous Aquatic Species Database program helping to refine our understanding of nonnative fish distributions and impacts in the United States.
