Christopher Rounds working toward his M.S. in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology at the Univeristy of Minnesota. Chris is member of the Hansen Lab and is currently helping with an eDNA project. The project seeks to optimize the detection of invasive species using environmental DNA and understand how detection rates of invasive species change seasonally, spatially and during different life history periods. With this project, Chris would love to help agencies develop best practices for using eDNA to detect and sample invasive species. During his free time, Chris enjoys spending time in the great outdoors, reading, and eating the best pizza in Minnesota!
