About Brett Towler

As a hydraulic engineer for the Fisheries program of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS), I work with federal, state, tribal partners and other stakeholders on the planning, design, construction, and operation of fish passage facilities throughout the country.
As adjunct faculty in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department I teach graduate courses and lead research practicums in support of the department's MS specialization in fish passage engineering.
