Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Hopkins Marine Station

About

I am primarily interested in applying high-throughput sequencing technologies to explore mechanisms of ecosystem resilience to climate change. I have a background in population genetics and have worked on a variety of organisms from sponges to fish. My research has taken me from California to Indonesia, New Zealand and Western Australia. I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Palumbi Lab, where I am spearheading an NSF funded project using transcriptomics to explore the recovery of reef-building corals in the National Park of American Samoa to the 2015 bleaching event.
