My research interests are in ecology, conservation, and management of aquatic ecosystems. Specifically, I am interested in fish community ecology, trophic webs, and population dynamics in tropical ecosystems. For my dissertation, I will focus on the fish community and trophic relationships in the Usumacinta River, the largest river in Mesoamerica that has an extraordinary fish richness and high endemism.
