Researchers in the Walsworth Lab examine how fish populations, aquatic communities and socio-ecological systems respond to and deal with environmental change, management actions and uncertainty. We apply quantitative modeling approaches to characterize past dynamics and project future dynamics under uncertain conditions, providing valuable information to managers and decision makers. Our research spans a broad range of ecosystems and species, from commercially important salmon in Alaska, to endangered non-game fishes in the American southwest.

I am currently recruiting an MS student to begin Fall 2021. The project will focus on the distribution and gear susceptibility of juvenile invasive fish to inform large-scale ecosystem restoration efforts. See position announcement below.
