Advisor: Jeff Hill
I was previously an assistant Fisheries Biologist for Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (now VDWR). I conducted and assisted in sampling tidal rivers and freshwater impoundments and reservoirs. I’ve worked with several types of fish species including sport fishes, invasives, endangered fish and anadromous species. Apart from sampling using electrofishing, gill nets and traps nets, I assisted with educational outreach, habitat enhancements and fish passage work. I’m currently pursing my MFAS and Aquaculture and Fish Health certificate with my research focusing on a temporal analysis of largemouth bass and their forage base in a tidal oligohaline system.
