About Me

I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in May 2014 with a B.S. in Environmental Science and a minor in Marine Science. Soon after graduation, I set off for Milwaukee, WI to work as a deckhand and an educator on board the S/V Denis Sullivan, a tall ship.¬†After lots of adventure, I am now back in Chapel Hill working as Dr. Karl Castillo’s lab manager, but I am also working on my own research. My current interests include:

  • Coral heterotrophy and its potential to “rescue” corals from increasing temperatures.
  • The pervasiveness of this heterotrophic “rescue effect” and its molecular underpinnings.
  • How past sea surface temperature has affected the ability of corals to respond to future climate change conditions.
