I am currently pursuing a PhD in Marine Sciences at the University of South Alabama and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab. I am studying microbial source-tracking to improve community health as a member of Dr. Brandi Kiel Reese's Geomicrobiology lab.
As a researcher, I am interested in investigating anthropogenic influences on biodiversity and host and organism susceptibility. I wish to build a career actively investigating threats and responses in natural marine systems.
This portfolio demonstrates my research ability, qualifications, and experience.
