2020 Devirian Scholarship Award

William is a third year PhD student studying freshwater urban ecology in Kurt Anderson's lab within the UC Riverside Department of Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology. His research examines the role of urbanization on freshwater communities, their trophic structure, and the interactions of community members with each other and their environment. This work has direct impacts for conservation of threatened and endangered fishes within the Santa Ana River and can inform conservation and research in other effluent dominated urban waterways.
