About Me

IMG_1773 - CopyI am a PhD candidate studying at the University of Hawai’i. I am interested in benthic ecology, especially invertebrate communities of the deep sea and Antarctica. I am fascinated by the linkages between the surface and deep ocean (e.g. pelagic-benthic coupling) and how the physics and chemistry influence spatial and temporal biological patterns. I have worked on a variety of projects both during my undergraduate degree (Marine Biology, University of Rhode Island) and my current PhD work (Biological Oceanography, University of Hawai’i). I also engage in outreach to promote STEM education, especially for young women.
