Austin Smith

Graduate Research Assistant

My name is Austin and I am a masters student here at Emporia State University.

My current research is observing and documenting the effects Bighead and Silver Carp's invasion have had on the local food webs within the Kansas River. This falls within my broader research interests of native fishes and their conservation.
