Grant earned his B.S. in Biology from Denison University in Granville, OH. After which, he served four years in the United States Peace Corps in Peru, where he did environmental development work in the Andes and later studied artisanal fisheries on the coast. His work on the coast focused on modelling the distribution, ecology, and abundance of jellyfish, sharks, and fish. His work in Peru led to multiple publications and the discovery of a new species.
Grant currently focuses on understanding the environmental drivers of Gulf Menhaden, population dynamics of Sheepshead and Black Drum, and fisheries induced evolution of Atlantic Croaker.
