Staff Listing

The Tennessee Unit is currently staffed by a Unit Leader, an Assistant Unit Leader, one research technician, and an administrative assistant. Normally, 5-10 MS and PhD graduate students are supported by a variety of funded research projects dealing with the study of fish and mussels. The Tennessee Unit has a very close working relationship on the campus of Tennessee Tech with the Biology Department and the Center for the Management, Protection, and Utilization of Water Resources (Water Center). The Water Center has state-of-the-art analytical and computer laboratories, plus support personnel that provide our students with opportunities to engage in a wide variety of environmental research.
