Advisor: Don Behringer
I am a grad student in Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences. My interests are focused on microflora and epidemiology of marine organisms, primarily benthic organisms, coral, algae and dinoflagellates. I am interested in the anthropogenic impact on these organisms and their habitats. I also have an interest in aquaculture and how microflora play a role in healthy farming.
My career is in laboratory science and in education. I am currently a high school science teacher and a microbiologist. I love bringing my passion for the earth to young people. I love to sail, kayak, bike, hike, and explore the great outdoors.
