Institution: US Geological Survey

Description of Expertise:

Bighead, silver, grass, and black carps have been the center of my research since 2002, but I have had an interest in these fish since the 1970s, soon after their original importations. Current research focuses on control through capture, early detection, selective toxic bait for black carp, risk assessments for carps in new locations, and early life history (behavior, development, requirements), especially as it relates to development of control mechanisms. I am also currently co-editing a symposium on snakeheads, and I have been the Research and Risk Assessment Committee chair for the Mississippi River Basin Panel on aquatic nuisance species (MRBP) for more than 10 years.
