William Wood

William with a Bighead Carp caught in Lake Barkley


William grew up in North Carolina and earned his bachelor’s degree at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. He worked with the North Carolina Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit snorkeling for Carolina Madtoms in the Tar and Neuse River basins before starting his Masters at Tennessee Tech in January 2018. His research focuses on monitoring and modeling the impact of Asian Carp invasion on sportfish and native fish communities in the Tennessee and Cumberland River basins. When he isn’t researching carp William enjoys cheering for NC State athletics, eating eastern North Carolina BBQ, Chick-Fil-A and surf fishing for Red Drum on the southern Outer Banks.
