Welcome to my research website! My name is Corey Dunn, and I’m a PhD candidate at the University of Missouri (Mizzou) within the River Studies lab headed by Dr. Craig Paukert. My PhD research is developing sampling and analytical methods for documenting fish diversity within medium-to-large (“mid-sized”) rivers across Missouri (USA). With these methods, I’ve examined the roles of connectivity and habitat diversity for structuring riverine fish communities.
More broadly, my research interests include statistics, and landscape and aquatic ecology, with the ultimate goal of generating knowledge and tools to conserve freshwater biodiversity. Please tour my website to learn more about my research. If you have any questions about my research, or in general about freshwater fish, or streams and rivers, see my contact information below.
