By: Norman Martin
Scott Collins, an Assistant Professor of Fisheries & Aquatic sciences within the Department of Natural Resources Management, joined the Texas Tech faculty in 2019. His research centers on understanding how changes to biodiversity (e.g., species extirpations, biological invasions) alter exchanges of resources between land and water.
To reveal the underlying mechanisms that shape the structure and function of aquatic ecosystems, and to identify effective management and conservation measures, the Michigan native indicated he uses a combination of community- and ecosystem-level approaches, conduct manipulative & natural field experiments, and modeling tools. His doctorate in biology is from Idaho State University's Stream Ecology Center in Pocatello, Idaho.
