Jeremy Farrell

Graduate Student/Laboratory Technician

Joining Darrin Freshwater Institute in 2003, Jeremy has been a spearhead in launching new DFWI projects.  Most recently, he was responsible for the discovery of the invasive species Asian Clam (Corbicula fluminea) that had established itself in Lake George, NY in 2011. 

Graduating with a BS in Geology from Union College, Jeremy decided to persue his PhD at RPI in 2005. His research involves hydroacoustic studies to varying degrees, mainly the study of fisheries and macroinvertebrates in Brooktrout Lake. Jeremy has developed his skill with hydroacoustics to help with research in other areas including Lake George cold water fisheries studies, sediment typing, habitat mapping, and detection and mapping of invasive plants.

Jeremy has also been a valuable asset when it comes to database management/development and GIS work. His other research interests include flow cam work, mesocosm studies, and hudson river research involving zebra mussels.

In his free time, Jeremy enjoys kite photography, hiking, canoeing, sailing, and playing the guitar.
