 Christopher John Winslow

Christopher Winslow, PhD

Director, Ohio Sea Grant College Program.

Coordinates Ohio Sea Grant’s Great Lakes research with agencies and universities, as well as assists in research, curriculum development, and student recruitment at The Ohio State University’s Stone Laboratory. Earned his doctorate at Bowling Green State University, with research focusing on interaction between the native smallmouth bass and invasive round goby.


Dr. Winslow studied the behavioral differences between largemouth and smallmouth bass to earn his master’s degree from BGSU, and he received his bachelor’s degree in biological sciences from Ohio University. As an Instructor at BGSU from 2002 – 2009 and an Assistant Professor at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania, Winslow taught general biology courses to more than 700 students. For the past seven years, Winslow has been a fixture at Stone Laboratory, teaching Aquatic Ecology classes to high school and college students and mentoring college students and their Lake Erie research projects in the lab’s Research Experience for Undergraduates Scholarship Program.

Impacts and Accomplishments

In 2017, Ohio Sea Grant’s Stone Lab field trips and tours continued to offer a unique immersion experience for thousands of students of all ages, stimulating future interest in science and instilling a lifetime of stewardship ethic for the Lake Erie ecosystem.

Ohio Sea Grant and the Ohio Division of Wildlife continue to partner on teaching thousands of regional visitors about Lake Erie issues and things they can do to protect these vital Ohio resources.
