Current Research

My research is focused on evaluating the habitat connectivity benefits of Denil fish ladders for Arctic Grayling on the Big Hole River.  Specifically, I am using Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) tags to monitor upstream passage of Arctic Grayling and other fish species, and looking at how physical and hydraulic conditions affect fish passage.
