Sarah Rubenstein


I grew up in a small town in upstate New York. After completing my undergraduate degree, I moved out west for work and travel so I am excited to be back on the east coast and pursuing my interests in fisheries ecology and management. Outside of academics, I enjoy spending my time outdoors hiking and fishing, as well as traveling and playing hockey.

Research Interests

My research will be on the Penobscot and Kennebec Rivers and will be characterizing the energetic costs of fish passage delays at dams to upstream migrating adult salmon using bioenergetics modeling.
