Bio:

I am a Seattle native and a PhD student in the Coastal Trophic Ecology Lab at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology (University of Oregon). I received my Master’s degree in Zoology with a focus on marine ecology at the University of British Columbia.

My love of marine sciences has led me to many places around the Pacific Northwest and beyond. As an undergraduate at the University of Washington I became a certified scientific diver and conducted subtidal research in the San Juan Islands. I also spent several summers at the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre in Barkley Sound BC working in subtidal eelgrass ecosystems. Currently, I am an associate researcher with the Smithsonian’s MarineGEO project, which has taken me from the reefs and mangroves of the Caribbean to the kelp forests of Tasmania.
