Research Associate
St. Anthony Falls Laboratory


Dr. Jessica L. Kozarek's primary research interests are in the areas of stream restoration and management; ecohydraulics; interactions between flow, sediment, and in-stream biota; use of hydraulic models to develop restoration guidance; and water quality and nutrient dynamics. Specific research projects include fish passage and sediment transport through box culverts, design of in-stream flow control structures, linkages between freshwater mussels and habitat changes, and analyzing scour at the base of retaining walls. 

Kozarek is a research associate at St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL). She received a BS in chemical engineering from Penn State, and MS and PhD degrees in biological systems engineering from Virginia Tech.
