Ocean Acidification Technician
I am an ecologist studying how climate change affects coastal environments.
I am specifically interested in how habitat-forming organisms are impacted, whether photosynthetic organisms can function as an ameliorative mechanism – blue carbon, and the societal impacts of climate change.
I received my BS in Environmental Science and Management (Ecology, Biodiversity, & Conservation) and minor in Oceanography from UC Davis, and MS in Ecology from San Diego State University. I have worked as an educator with the Marine Science Institute, and dabbled in policy with San Francisco Baykeeper. I am now the ocean acidifcation technician for the BOAR Research Program at UC Davis’ Bodega Marine Laboratory.
Outside of the lab, I can often be found with my nose in a book, practicing yoga, or exploring nature.
