About

I’m an ecological geneticist with a broad interest in all things marine conservation. My current research utilises a range of high-throughput sequencing approaches to better understand how marine populations will respond to rapid environmental 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 to New Zealand to Western Australia, and back to California. I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Palumbi Lab at Stanford University, where I am spearheading an NSF funded project looking at the recovery of reef-building corals to a bleaching event in the National Park of American Samoa.
