Education B.Sc. Marine Biology

Research Interests:  I am a Ph.D. graduate student and NSF Fellow.  I previously attended Florida International University where I graduated summa cum laude with a B.Sc. in marine biology.  My passion for marine conservation and curiosity about microbes has led me to investigate the viruses associated with cetacean and pinniped stranding events.

Awards:  NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, April 2012.
