I was raised in Mississippi where I spent many summers going down to the Gulf and becoming fascinated with the ocean. As I moved into my undergraduate degree, I wanted to learn about as many aspects of the ocean as I could. In 2022, I earned my B.S. in Marine Biology from the College of Charleston in South Carolina. I will continue my education in the graduate Oceanography program at Rutgers starting in 2022 with Dr. Daphne Munroe.
My research interests include larval ecology, bio-physical interactions, and the impacts of climate change on invertebrate communities and populations.
