My research career began at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Dr. Karl Castillo's Coral Ecophysiology Lab, where I conducted two independent studies (one published, one in prep). After graduating, I worked for two years as manager of the Davies Marine Population Genomics Lab at Boston University, where I facilitated day-to-day lab operations and conducted my own research.
I am passionate about engaging broader communities with science, encouraging society to evaluate how we relate to and interact with the environment, and understanding how marine ecosystems function in a changing world.
