International Activities (last 5 years) Design and analyses assistance for assessing the relationships between hydrologic regimes and spawning patterns of highly migratory catfishes (Family: Pimelodidae) in Peruvian Amazon, Madre de Dios River, Peru; Provide design assistance and equipment for development of a tagging program to estimate movement and exploitation of giant mahseer (Family: Cyprinidae) in the Cauvery (Kaveri) River in cooperation with the Wildlife Association of South India and the Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment; Guidance on tagging programs to estimate abundance and exploitation patterns for large river fishes, Department of Primary Industries, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Research area: Primary research responsibilities are related to evaluating how animal populations respond to management actions. Additional areas of research include developing new estimation techniques for evaluating trends in animal populations, estimating population vital rates, and management policy development.
