I am a marine ecologist and avid diver. I completed my MS at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and am currently working in the Pacific.

My broad research interest is coral reef ecology. My past research focused on Caribbean lionfish invasion. Potential future interests include coral reef functional diversity and MPA's.

I am passionate about marine science outreach and education, especially to local communities, as well as communicating science through social media outlets.
