Research Interests:  Urban and Evolutionary Ecology, specifically how urban ecological and evolutionary processes can be better understood and used to inform environmentally conscious city and land-use management. My thesis work will involve surveys of water quality within City of Denver, and more specifically along the Highline Canal, using aquatic invertebrate and plant diversity as quality indicators.
