Graduate students

I am recruiting new students to join the lab group. New and ongoing projects include:

  • aquatic invertebrate studies on the Wild & Scenic Verde River and Fossil Creek, Arizona
  • evolution of aquatic organisms in free flowing and dammed rivers
  • whole-community models for aquatic insect population dynamics
  • aquatic insect life histories in the Grand Canyon and Colorado River tributaries
  • hydroperiod dynamics and aquatic insects in seasonal ponds

I also encourage original project ideas from motivated students. Contact me directly with a statement of your research interests and experience, and your curriculum vitae.
