Deep-sea Biologist. PhD Candidate. Science Communicator.

 

Welcome! I am a marine scientist currently pursuing a doctoral degree at Temple University in the Cordes Lab. The majority of my research focuses on studying the effects of human-induced stressors on cold-water coral (CWC) communities, from the physiological to the molecular level. However, I am also involved in projects spanning CWC diversity and distribution to genomic analyses. Please, take your time, browse around, and read about my research interests, field experiences, and commitment to outreach.
