Greetings and thanks for visiting my professional web page!


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Science and Ecology at the University of Texas at San Antonio.


My broad research interests seek to understand why species—particularly freshwater fishes—occur where they do. Collaborators and I integrate a variety of research approaches including field-based studies, geographic information systems, statistical niche and community modeling, and thermal physiology experiments. The broad aims of this research are to identify species that are vulnerable to anthropogenic environmental change and inform conservation practice. I am also interested in exploring environmental management and public education approaches to improve conservation of freshwater biodiversity.


Please peruse my web page for more details about my research endeavors, past, present, and future. Feel free to shoot me an email (troiamj@gmail.com) with questions or if you have collaborative interest.
