My name is Austin Osmanski and I'm a doctoral student researching crocodilian genomics at Texas Tech University. My passion for crocodile conservation began when I was a child watching Steve Irwin's Crocodile Hunter. Since then, it has blossomed into a fantastic academic career which is still unfolding before me. My interests include genomics, bioinformatics, and conservation policy of these majestic organisms. My academic advisers are Drs. Lou D. Densmore and David A. Ray.
