1984 B.S. Microbiology University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, minors in chemistry and nuclear medicine technology.

Primary Responsibilities/Activities:
My primary focus is to provide technical assistance to the Great Lakes Fishery Commission’s sea lamprey control program in the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain.  Technical assistance involves developing new and improved formulations of the lampricides TFM and Bayluscide, developing more efficient and cost-effective application techniques of lampricide formulations to ensure safe yet effective sea lamprey control, and assessing the toxicological risk of the lampricides to non-target species of concern.
