     I received my B.S. degree in biology, with an emphasis on wildlife management and conservation, from EWU in 2013. My graduate thesis work is exploring how the quality of wetlands at Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge is affected by the presence of invasive brook stickleback (Culaea inconstans). I will be looking at the temporal components of the invasion by comparing wetlands that are historically invaded, recently invaded and not invaded. One component of this work is looking at water quality, macroinvertebrate and macrophyte abundance, and waterfowl brooding pairs. Another component of this work is looking at fingernail clam reproductive success and stress physiology in stickleback-containing ponds.
