I am a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate, graduate research assistant, and NSF GRF in the coral reef health and molecular ecology lab at FAU-Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute under the mentorship of Dr. Joshua Voss. I am originally from outside of Washington, DC but became a Floridian when I moved to Miami for college and stayed in the sunshine state for graduate school.
Broadly, my research interests include coral reef ecology, population genetics and genomics, mesophotic reefs, and the application of science to effective coral reef management and policy, especially marine protected area designation.
Outside of science I love cooking (read: eating), dancing, reading trashy novels, and playing with dogs.
I am planning on graduating in spring or summer 2022 and am interested in both science policy fellowships and more traditional coral reef ecology postdocs please check out the most current version of my C.V. for more information on my background.
