PhD candidate, Marine Vertebrate Biology
Departmental advisors/research mentors: Mike Frisk, Anne McElroy, Bob Cerrato

Gallagher will study climate change adaptation across multiple populations of brook trout in Newfoundland, Canada. He hopes to understand the primary factors that are responsible for successful adaptation, and produce a population model that can be applied to other species of salmon and trout throughout the United States and Canada. Such knowledge and tools will be crucial for conserving these socioeconomically important coldwater fishes as warming continues in the coming decades.
