Education

  • M.S., University of Lodz, Poland, 1997
  • Ph.D., University of Missouri-Columbia, 2005

AIS Area of Interest

Dr. Bajer's current work focuses on understanding why some species of introduced fish become invasive and damaging in specific geographic regions, but not in others, and how this process might be controlled using integrated approaches. My current efforts include:

  • Developing selective toxin delivery systems to enable control of common carp populations in especially challenging ecosystems where biological control is weak (winterkill-prone prairie lakes)
  • Testing the limits of common carp biocontrol to determine if biocontrol works in hypereutrophic lakes
