Brent P. Thoma - Principal Investigator

Dr. Thoma spent his formative years exploring the natural beauty of Missouri's springs, streams, and lakes, but his interests in invertebrate zoology and marine biology drew him to the Gulf Coast. After taking part in the Summer Field Program at the Gulf Coast Research Lab (GCRL) as an undergraduate, Brent returned to GCRL to complete his Master's in Coastal Sciences prior to completing his PhD and post-doctoral research at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Brent is currently an Assistant Professor and Director of Marine Science in the Department of Biology at Jackson State University.
