Graduate Student

I earned my B.S. in field and wildlife biology from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 2013. After graduation, I worked for the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute and the National Marine Fisheries Service in the respective fields of deep sea and anadromous fish ecology. In fall 2015, I enrolled in the Biology PhD program at Stanford University where my research utilizes in situ footage, scientific surveys, animal-borne data loggers, oceanographic data and molecular techniques to understand the migratory behaviors of ecologically and economically important Pacific squids and the environmental drivers and impacts of these movements.
