Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Hogan’s research is at the interface of population ecology and conservation biology with a focus on movement ecology, dispersal and migration, invasive species, and global change. I seek to better understand the dynamics and structure of populations and communities in aquatic ecosystems, with a goal of informing conservation and management decision making. My approach to research is multi-disciplinary. I emphasize empirical analysis and utilize advanced population genetic analyses and biogeochemistry, population demography, and intensive field-based experimental studies.
