Populations must adapt to a wide array of natural and anthropogenic environmental stresses if they are to remain viable. Much of my research examines individual and population level effects of stressors on molluscs and crustaceans, and how these stressors affect population viability. Previous research projects focused on suspended sediments, advection, developmental bottlenecks, invasive species, and agrochemicals in coupled lentic-lotic systems. Aquatic systems I have worked on range from large, tidal (Hudson) and non-tidal rivers (Illinois, upper Mississippi), to small streams, reservoirs, and floodplain lakes. As a new faculty member at Auburn, I am developing a research program to study effects of stressors (invasive species, pesticides, altered flow regimes, etc.) on population dynamics of Southeastern molluscan and crustacean fauna, with an initial emphasis on native unionid mussels.
