Welcome to my research website! My name is Corey Dunn, and I’m a PhD candidate at the University of Missouri (Mizzou) within the School of Natural Resources and the Missouri Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit. I’m currently developing sampling protocols for detecting all fish species within medium-to-large ("mid-sized") rivers across Missouri and examining the influence of connectivity on big-river fish communities through time.
Before Mizzou, I researched conservation issues surrounding the decline of an imperiled fish species in the New River drainage of Virginia and West Virginia. More broadly, my research interests include statistics, and landscape and aquatic ecology, with the ultimate goal of generating knowledge and tools to conserve aquatic biodiversity. Please tour my website to see some of my research activities.
