Habitat use of salmon and trout across landscapes; Stream ecology, landscape ecology, geomorphology, forest policy.
My research interests center around three broad topics: 1)Understanding how salmon and trout use stream habitats and how these habitats are distributed across a landscape; 2) Evaluating and developing spatial data for broad-scale research and management of stream ecosystems; and 3)Advancing knowledge of interactions among in-channel conditions, watershed processes, and land management to better evaluate policy options.
