Stephanie Rosales, Ph.D. Candidate, Dr. Vega-Thurber Lab
|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.
