Current Students

Graduate students in my program live and work on the coast.  They take classwork on the main campus for one semester.  All other classwork is completed at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab.  Their semester on campus is usually the winter semester.  Most research projects involve reef fishes.  Almost any aspect of the life history, ecology, behavior and populations assessment are preferred areas of research.  Because most work involves offshore trips (20 to 50 miles) we work together helping each other on most projects.

The students both past and present originate from many different places.  Also Auburn Fisheries has typically hosted students from around the world.  Present students include Darin Topping (Ph.D.), Carrie Simmons (Ph.D.), Sabrina Beyer (M.S.), and Dianna Miller (M.S.).
