- Research Technician, Aquatic Ecology Lab
Andrew’s master’s research focused on Kansas freshwater mussels. After graduating, he surveyed streams as a seasonal ecological technician for the Kansas Dept. of Wildlife and Parks, and later held several positions in Prof. Mark Pegg’s lab at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. While at UNL, he worked on a freshwater mussel reintroduction project, monitored fish and invertebrate communities in restored side channels of the Platte River, sampled fish in the Platte and Missouri Rivers, and worked with a large-scale acoustic telemetry project monitoring channel catfish movement in the Red River of the North.
