I started working on my PhD through the UF/IFAS Nature Coast Biological Station in 2019. My research focuses on the effects of salinity on structuring estuarine food webs in the Suwanee River Sound, FL, and other northern Gulf of Mexico estuaries. I am developing modeling and experimental approaches to examine the distribution of fish and crustaceans along the estuarine salinity gradient and determine how variation in species interactions due to changes in salinity shapes these distributions.
