About me

Growing up in Southern California, I have always loved the ocean thanks to early morning fishing trips with my father and visits to the aquarium with my family. 


I went to college at the University of Miami, where I majored in marine science, biology, and geology. After graduating, I worked as a laboratory manager and research technician for the Bracken-Grissom Lab at Florida International University. I then moved back to California for graduate school, where I was a member of the Hofmann Lab at UC Santa Barbara. I received my Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology (EEMB) in 2019, and although I was sad to leave lovely Santa Barbara, I was very excited to be continuing my journey in another city I love: Miami!


I am currently a postdoc in the Environmental Epigenetics Lab (EELab) at Florida International University (FIU). Please view my CV and Research pages to learn more about my past and current research projects.
