My research integrates concepts and techniques from ecophysiology, behavioural ecology, bioenergetics, fisheries science, thermal biology, and other areas relevant to fish ecology. The broad goal of my research program is to make discoveries about fish ecology while also generating knowledge that is useful for conservation and resource management. My lab collaborates with a diverse network of people and institutions, including working directly with knowledge users for appropriate projects.
