Chris has been working on molecular genetics of fishes since he was an undergraduate and has been involved in a number of studies. His dissertation research involves using genomics to address issues in population genetics and the conservation of our natural resources Specifically, his research involves investigating ways that next-generation DNA sequencing and genetic mapping can be used to understand population dynamics of red drum, a marine fish species of considerable economic importance in the Gulf of Mexico and along the U.S. southeast coast.
Chris received a B.S. in Biology in 2009 from Texas A&M University – College Station and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Genetics from Texas A&M University – College Station.
