Current Projects

His current research examines

  1. long-term dynamics of Oneida Lake fish and fisheries including effects of cormorants and zebra mussels
  2. dynamics of interacting fish populations and importance of cannibalism
  3. role of predatory invertebrates (mysids, spiny water flea) in Lake Ontario, and
  4. development of acoustic methods to study spatial distributions of aquatic organisms.
