I am an Associate Professor of Fisheries in the Department of Biology at Ball State University, and direct the PhD in Environmental Sciences. I joined the faculty in 2017 after 6 years at the University of Minnesota. I received my academic training at York University (BSc), the University of Alberta (MSc), and the University of Toronto (PhD), and did a post-doc at Louisiana State University. I love to teach, and my research interests include (but are not limited to) fish life history, temperature effects, population dynamics, and novel sources of fisheries data such as smartphones apps. I am a Canadian ex-pat, avid cyclist, occasional angler, consummate recycler, friend of felines, lover of nature, and happily married father of two.
