Research Interests

My research interests include reproductive physiology and endocrinology and physiological ecology of fishes. My research has focused on the effects of temperature and environmental contaminants on the reproductive potential and developmental biology of fishes; development of non-invasive methods to determine spawning readiness in threatened or endangered species, specifically sturgeon and June sucker, in conservation propagation programs; and the effects of stress on fish performance in the wild and in conservation propagation programs.
