Dr. Prosanta Chakrabarty is a Professor and Curator of Fishes at the Museum of Natural Science and Department of Biological Science at Louisiana State University. He is an evolutionary biologist and an ichthyologist studying the deep history of life on this planet. His work includes fieldtrips to over 35 countries and he has discovered fifteen new species. He earned his PhD at the University of Michigan and his undergraduate degree is from McGill University in Montreal. He has written over 70 peer-reviewed papers and two books including, A Guide to Academia: Getting into and surviving grad school, postdocs and a research.
