College of Natural Resources Room 10
Lisa Eby completed her Bachelor’s and Masters of Science (B.S. and M.S.) at the University of Wisconsin, her Ph.D. at Duke University in Aquatic Ecology and a postdoctoral appointment at Arizona State University. She is currently a professor of Aquatic Ecology in the Wildlife Biology Program and Director of the Ecosystem Science and Restoration Program at the University of Montana. Her research questions are focused at the intersection areas that advance our ecological knowledge and increase our understanding around conservation and management issues in aquatic systems. Currently her research lab addresses questions that span a range of questions from genes to ecosystems primarily focused on understanding the drivers of aquatic populations and communities. Two examples include (1) examining how humans are shifting drivers of population and community dynamics through landscape changes and alteration to disturbance regimes and (2) working to improve our understanding of the ecological and evolutionary tradeoffs in cutthroat hybridization versus isolation management approaches. She is honored to have been awarded the American Fisheries Society Excellence in Fisheries Education Award in 2017.
