I recently earned my M.S. in Biology, and have since entered career that allows me to combine my passion for science with that for education.
My previous research focused on how adaptive genetic variation can allow populations to persist in rapidly changing environments. For my master's thesis I studied the potential of evolutionary rescue in response to warming via genotypic variation in Macrocystis pyrifera, Giant Kelp.
I received my B.S. in Biology from Temple University. While at Temple, I was an undergraduate research assistant in the Cordes lab in which I quantified the response of the cold-water coral Lophelia pertusa to ocean acidification over both short- and long-time frames, and compared responses among genotypes.
