I am a second year undergraduate marine biology student at UC San Diego. My research in the Deheyn lab focuses on helping discover how the worm Chaetopterus sp. gets its bioluminescent properties. I am also very interested in biology research related to biomimicry, in which we can look at structures and processes in nature and use them through science to create better and more efficient technology for humans to use — I believe that Marine Biology is a good place to look for such types of nature to imitate. I am also interested in studying cephalopods, especially the way they are able to change color to help them camouflage. I'm a very passionate scientist, and am really excited to be a part of this lab.
