I am a Master’s student under the guidance of Dr. Stacy Kim of the Benthic Lab and Dr. Ivano Aiello of the Geological Oceanography lab. I earned my B.S. degree in Marine Biology at UC Santa Cruz in 2009. After my undergraduate work, I worked in the Benthic Lab as a field diver and lab tech for two years. I am interested in examining how communities of benthic invertebrates change with depth in Antarctica.
