I am a second-year M.S. candidate and graduate research assistant 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 Rochester, NY and completed my B.S. in Marine Vertebrate Biology at Stony Brook University in 2021. In June 2021, I became a Floridian when I moved to the sunshine state for graduate school.
Broadly, my research interests include coral reef ecology, genomics, selective breeding, coral disease, and the application of science for effective coral reef management and restoration. Outside of school I love cooking, birding, photography, painting, and paddle boarding. I also run a sustainable ocean apparel company called Tidal Tees Apparel.
I am planning on graduating in Spring 2023 and am looking to continue on to a Ph.D. program, please check out the most current version of my C.V. for more information on my background.
