Larissa Lee


Larissa Lee earned a B.A. from Colby College in 2013, with majors in both Environmental Studies and Global Studies. Since 2013, she has worked with fish populations in Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. In Wyoming, she helped to remove invasive lake trout from Yellowstone Lake in Yellowstone National Park. Larissa spent a year working as an AmeriCorps member at Trout Unlimited, where she developed a restoration strategy for a degraded watershed in Montana. In Idaho, she monitored salmonid populations as a fisheries technician for Idaho Fish and Game. Larissa came to the University of Arizona in 2016 to complete her M.S. in Natural Resources, with a focus on fisheries conservation and management. As a graduate research assistant at the University of Arizona, Larissa is developing habitat suitability criteria for native and nonnative species in multiple Arizona rivers and streams. She is also examining the relationship between hydrologic flow regime and fish community structure throughout these rivers and streams. Her research will inform fisheries managers on how to best protect flow regime to promote the success of native fish populations.
