Area of Expertise:
Nathan Furey was a Postdoctoral Investigator at UBC until 2018, and now works as an Assistant Biology Professor in the Fish and Movement Ecology Lab at the university of New Hampshire. He is interested in the motivations and consequences of fish movements across spatial and temporal landscapes. Recently, he has focused on the migrations of juvenile salmon smolts and their interactions with predatory bull trout. His work integrates movement ecology, landscape ecology, feeding ecology, and physiology to provide multiple perspectives on ecological phenomena.
