I received my bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology from the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology, University of Oregon. I then interned at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Bocas del Toro, Panama researching urchin larval response to environmental changes.


Currently I am a MPhil student in Life Science with an emphasis in marine biology. My research interests are very broad, including but not limited to, larval biology, ecology and developmental biology. I hope to focus my masters research on larval urchin cloning.
