My PhD research explores the impact of climate change on the kelp forest environment across varying spatial scales. The knowledge gained from this examination is crucial when dealing with endangered species, and it is especially relevant to white abalone population restoration, which is the focus of my work with CDFW (California Department of Fish and Wildlife) and NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration).
I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in marine biology at UC San Diego and conducted fisheries research at NOAA before beginning graduate school at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. As a marine ecologist, I place strong emphasis on field technique and observation.
