Research Interests

I have a broad interest in how marine organisms are affected by their physical environment. I enjoy making connections between large scale oceanic processes and biotic factors.

Short history

I grew up in Middletown, New Jersey and spent most of my childhood exploring the local woods and streams around my home. I have always had an innate interest in the ocean and the creatures contained within it. During my four years of undergraduate study, I competed collegiately in Cross Country and Track and Field.
