Research Interests

Dr. Dunn is an Assistant Professor and a Research Fisheries Biologist for the United States Geological Survey. He leads the USGS North Carolina Fish & Wildlife Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit, which supports the conservation and management of natural resources through applied research, graduate education, and by technical support to conservation agencies. His overarching research interest is conservation of rivers and river-dependent species. General themes of his research program include 1) linkages between landscapes, and freshwater fish and invertebrate communities, 2) monitoring and assessment of freshwater ecosystems, 3) imperiled species management, and 4) natural resources decision-making. Much of his work has focused geographically within southeastern (USA) streams and rivers — a biodiversity hotspot.
