Jackie Culotta a Master's Student in Dr. Allen Mensinger's lab. Jackie focuses on ways to control bigheaded carp range expansion. By classically conditioning carp to associate broadband sound with carbon dioxide, researchers hope to prolong their aversion to sound deterrents alone. This may make non-physical barrier technology for these species more effective while also cutting down on carbon dioxide use. When they are not working with fish, Jackie likes to bike, canoe, and cross country ski.
