I am studying Marine Science through the College of Creative Studies at UCSB. I grew up in Arizona, but found my spark living in Pacific Grove and working for the Monterey Bay Aquarium. When I get the chance, I enjoy hiking and SCUBA diving.
My research interests lie in the biogeochemical and ecological importance of marine phytoplankton. Using probable climate change stressors, I am exploring the physiological effects of a changing environment.
