Welcome to my research website! My name is Corey Dunn, and I'm an Assistant Unit Leader of the US Geological Survey's Mississippi Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit and Assistant Professor in the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Aquaculture at Mississippi State University.
My current projects span a mix of conservation-focused topics including helping control the spread of invasive carps, conducting distributional surveys of narrow-ranged endemic crayfishes, and developing statistical frameworks for evaluating imperilment of hundreds of freshwater fish and mussel species inhabiting the southeastern United States.
More broadly, my research interests include conservation, rivers, and landscape ecology, with my ultimate goal being to generate knowledge and tools to conserve freshwater biodiversity. Please tour my website to learn more about my background. If you have any questions about my research or in general about fish, rivers, and conservation please contact me using the information below or follow along via my science outreach Twitter account.
