I am a PhD candidate in marine ecology and biogeography, studying with Dr. Giulio De Leo at the Hopkins Marine Station. My research employs a variety of statistical and computational tools to examine the effects of climate change on predator-prey interactions in coastal marine ecosystems. By characterizing changes that have already occurred, and building projections under various climate scenarios, my work is aimed at adapting fisheries and marine resource management to a warming world. Before coming to Stanford, I worked alongside Drs. Benjamin Ruttenberg and Jennifer O'Leary, studying the responses of marine communities to disturbance, the population dynamics of marine invertebrates, and the large-scale processes structuring the biogeographic ranges of temperate fishes.
When I'm not working, I like to be out in nature - birding, foraging around the intertidal, diving, or trying to surf!
