Welcome to my website!
I am a National Science Foundation (NSF) Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Biology (PRFB) at Florida International University (FIU). I am also a postdoc within the NSF Center of Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST) at FIU, the Center for Aquatic Chemistry and Environment (CAChE).
I study global change marine biology in Dr. Jose Eirin-Lopez's Environmental Epigenetics Lab (EELab).

I am absolutely thrilled to announce that I am joining the faculty at Duke University's Nicholas School of the Environment as an assistant professor of coastal and marine climate change! My research program will balance both basic and applied research projects to address major questions in climate change biology. Look for the Wong Lab coming to Duke University Marine Lab this Fall 2023! Interested students at any level, postdocs, or other collaborators are encouraged to contact me.
I had a fantastic week at the Benthic Ecology Meeting here in Miami, FL. There were countless fantastic talks and posters, and it was wonderful to chat with so many amazing colleagues. I presented my work investigating the effects of the 2022 Diadema mortality event in Puerto Rico (funded by the NSF PRFB program) as well as co-presented my work with Dr. Kelcie Chiquillo in which we used an eDNA approach to investigate vertebrate biodiversity in Biscayne Bay.
We are continuing our project funded by Puerto Rico Sea Grant to investigate water quality and climate change effects on the sea urchin Diadema antillarum. This work is done in collaboration with our local partners, Sociedad Ambience Marino.
I had an amazing time in Woods Hole at EPIMAR 2022 discussing epigenetics with an inspiring group of marine and aquatic biologists. I'm looking forward to the future of this field as we continue to explore best principles, share multi-omic approaches, and form exciting collaborations.
