Carla C. Stout


I am a PhD candidate in Dr. Jon Armbruster’s lab at Auburn University, AL. I am primarily interested in using new phylogenomic techniques to infer the evolutionary relationships of Cypriniformes (minnows, loaches, carps, suckers, etc.), but I also study population genetics, geometric morphometrics, and phylogenetics of North American freshwater fishes.

In a former lab I studied sea slug evolutionary relationships, focusing on the genus Dendronotus. I named a new species, Dendronotus noahi, after my amazing nephew, Noah D. Silva.
