M.S. Fisheries

Trailer T-5 (BW Grads)
907.474.6052
M.S. Wildlife Biology and Conservation
Broadly, I am interested in the ecology and conservation of Arctic-breeding shorebirds. My research focuses on whether and how winter-time stress may carry over to affect reproductive success in individuals. I am also looking at connections between breeding and wintering populations to see whether individuals from one population experience similar levels of stress versus those from other populations.

M.S. Biology

907.474.6602
M.S. Wildlife Biology and Conservation
Feeding ecology of Lesser scaup ducklings on the Yukon Flats NWR and their vulnerability to trophic mismatch. Generally, I am interested in wetland ecology and conservation; avian ecology, conservation and management; stable isotope ecology; avian energetics; aquatic entomology; land management; climate change.

M.S. Wildlife Biology and Conservation
I am studying parturition rates, calf survival, and date/location of calf birth for the Porcupine Caribou Herd. My surveys are done from a plane looking for collared female caribou and their calves in the spring above the Brooks Range. I did my undergrad in Fisheries and Wildlife Biology at Oregon State University with a specialization in Mammal Biology and Conservation. I have experience working with salmonids, black-tailed deer, bighorn sheep, waterfowl, telemetry, GPS collars, and more!

M.S. Fisheries
Philip Joy (Mark Wipfli)

Ph.D. Fisheries
I am investigating how marine-derived nutrients from spawning salmon affects the growth and productivity of juvenile coho and Chinook salmon rearing in freshwater environments.

Ph.D. Fisheries
Investigating the movement, habitat selection and foraging ecology of Broad Whitefish (Coregonus nasus) in Colville Watershed, Alaska
Benjamin Meyer (Mark Wipfli)

907.232.0280
M.S. Fisheries
My work focuses on exploring potential effects of climate change on juvenile salmon habitat. For my Masters project I am exploring how temporal and spatial trends in water temperature and diet relate to growth trends in juvenile Coho and Chinook salmon in the Kenai River watershed.

Ph.D. Fisheries
For my graduate research, I hope to explore the consequences of increasing human pressures on the freshwater ecosystems of southeastern Alaska and use spatially explicit modeling to describe current and future risks to fish populations.
