Advisor: Josh Patterson
I am a distance MFAS student working under Dr. Josh Patterson. I currently work at the National Ocean Service (NOS, NOAA) as an advisor to the Deputy Assistant Administrator. I previously worked as a Fishery Regulations Specialist and the NOAA Liaison to the Regional Fishery Management Councils. My undergraduate degree focused on coastal ecology, and my previous research included salt marsh, oyster reef, and tropical ecosystem restoration.
