Danny is a PhD student in Dr. Grace Wilkinson's Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Center for Limnology. Danny’s research focuses on the drivers of environmental change in lakes, including local factors such as invasive species and regional factors such as climate change. He is especially excited when he gets to work with long-term datasets.
Danny received his BS in Environmental Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, where he also worked for several years in the aquatic ecology lab of Dr. Stuart Jones. Inspired by his undergraduate research, Danny went on to complete a MS in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences with Dr. Eric Larson at the University of Illinois, where he investigated the long-term effects of invasive rusty crayfish.
