I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Biology department at Temple University, in Philadelphia, PA. I joined the Cordes lab in the Summer of 2012 after getting my B.S. in Biology with an emphasis in Ecology, from Pennsylvania State University in 2011.
I currently have a broad range of research interests in marine biology and deep-sea ecology. I am particularly interested in the effects of anthropogenic stressors on coral communities and their associated fauna.
