Aaron is an NSF postdoctoral fellow working at the University of Washington Friday Harbor Laboratories and is interested in understanding how aquatic organisms interact with their chemical environment. He earned a B.S. in Biology and a B.A in Chemistry from Cal State Fullerton before starting a Ph.D. in Ecology at the UC Davis Bodega Marine Lab. His research focuses on understanding how habitat forming species alter chemistry, the consequences of those alterations for associated species, and how those interactions change given natural and human driven variability in background water chemistry.
