I am a marine conservation ecologist, currently pursuing a PhD in Dr. John Bruno's lab at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the Curriculum for the Environment and Ecology.
Broadly, my research interests focus on coral reef ecology, ecosystem-based fisheries management, and tropical marine conservation. I hope to become an integrative part of connecting academics, natural resource managers, and local communities to achieve conservation objectives.
You can sign up to receive email updates and follow along on my journey to bring together marine scientists, natural resource managers and fisherfolk together to preserve Belize's coral reefs!
This project is a part of the Science Exploration Education (S.E.E.) Initiative, which pairs expedition leaders with an OpenROV Trident (underwater drone, at right) to help them explore different marine ecosystems.
