Our research focuses on the pathogens that affect the health of wild Pacific salmon populations, particularly myxozoan parasites, which have a complex life cycle, requiring both a fish and annelid host.

Salmon diseases, host resistance mechanisms, parasite evolution.

My research has focused on (1) the effects of agricultural and forestry land-use practices on stream and riparian habitats critical to native fish species, and (2) the development of land management practices that minimize degradation of stream and riparian functions important to aquatic species.
