I am a biology PhD student with research interests in coral reef community ecology, anthropogenic change, species interactions, and community resilience and stability. I am also dedicated to the diversification of the fields of marine biology and ecology and evolution, as well as equity within academia and in the sense of access to and utilization of natural resources. Before becoming a grad student at Stanford, I was a CAMINO scholar at UC Santa Cruz where I earned a B.S. in Marine Biology. During this time I participated in research involving coral microbiomes, salamander response to heat stress, marine mammal fatality surveys, and more.
