PRESS, IMAGES, OUTREACH

Here I'm showing a few of my presentations and some random photos. Feel free to use and share, but please contact me if you're not sure how to reference them or would like them as a powerpoint (i.e. with animations). Thanks!

Salmon Festival

Salmon Festival

Public education at the Stanislaus River Salmon Festival 2017 in Knights Ferry, CA. So much fun talking to all the kids!

Central Valley salmon

Central Valley salmon

Guest lecture about the unique history of Central Valley Chinook salmon that I have for the Salmon & Society class organized by Peter Westley at University of Alaska Fairbanks

Life history portfolios

The image shows two rotary screw traps in the Stanislaus River. I gave the linked presentation at the Bay Delta Science Conference in 2014, examining the relative success of different juvenile strategies (i.e. observed in these traps vs. those reconstructed in the returning adults) in a wet and dry year. See also the PLoS ONE paper under "Publications".

Finding Nemo

"Where were your fish last night?". Public lecture (with a fish dissection) at a cafe in San Francisco as part of their ScienceBytes series. Image credit: https://bioventures.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/mm7274_051007_02542.jpg

Life history diversity

Life history diversity

The linked talk is a follow up to my Bay-Delta Science Conference talk examining juvenile salmon migration, life history diversity and survival using rotary screw trap data and otolith reconstructions. I presented this talk at the American Fisheries Society meeting in Oregon in 2015. Image credit: old.streamnet.org/SLCsmolts.html

Agile gibbon acoustics

Agile gibbon acoustics

In 2004 my (now) husband and I went to Borneo to research geographic dialect in the great call of the agile gibbon (Hylobates agilis)

Humpback acoustics

Humpback acoustics

In 2004 I was a volunteer for the Humpback whale Acoustic Research Collaboration (HARC) investigating the behavior and song patterns of humpbacks migrating past the coast of Queensland, Australia

Bioindicators

Bioindicators

For my undergraduate honors project I examined spatial patterns in the occurrence of imposex in dog whelks as a bioindicator of tributyltin pollution.

Plaice otolith microchemistry

Plaice otolith microchemistry

Poster on my PhD experiment investigating physiological influences on otolith chemistry, presented at the International Flatfish Symposium in the Netherlands in 2011.

Fiordland, NZ

Fiordland, NZ

I was lucky enough to do a lot of diving in Fiordland (New Zealand) for my MSc research and working with the Department of Conservation. My mentor at the University of Otago (Steve Wing) and many of his students and colleagues have carried out pioneering research in these unique habitats

Completely unrelated to my research, here I am serenading a "rehabilitated" orangutan and her offspring at Tanjung Puting, Borneo. The pair were far more interested in the food behind me than my playing....

Out on a clam hunt

Out on a clam hunt

Out in the delta looking for clams with my boss and friend, Rachel Johnson. (Their shell provides a neat time series to test the stability of the water chemistry over time)
