Welcome to my personal webpage! I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Limnology at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and my research revolves around how spatial and temporal variability combine to affect freshwater ecosystems throughout the Midwest. I am particularly interested in how seasonal shifts and winter conditions influence processes in rivers and lakes. I am also very interested in curriculum development and inclusive teaching strategies in higher education, and I use aquatic-based courses to explore effective teaching methods.
