Ph.D. Candidate in Marine Science, Florida State University

I am broadly interested in the ecology and conservation of coastal elasmobranch species. I am particularly interested in the identification of critical habitats and movement patterns of vulnerable species. For my project I am using acoustic telemetry to track the movements of Pristis pectinata, the smalltooth sawfish, which is a critically endangered elasmobranch species. The ultimate goal of this project is to identify where this species is spending most of its time and what areas are vital for the recovery and conservation of this species.
