I’m an PhD student in Ecology and Evolution at Rutgers University, where I study marine ecology in the Pinsky Lab. My current research focuses on the role of microclimates in coral reef adaptation to climate change. Broadly, I’m interested in spatial patterns in ecological change and adaptation, science education, and sustainable development, particularly in southeast Africa.
I earned undergraduate degrees in environmental science and biology from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) in 2017, where I worked as a research assistant in an urban ecology lab. From 2017 to 2019 I taught high school biology with the Peace Corps in Mozambique, where I also worked under the Mozambican Ministry of Science, Technology, and Higher Education to support the national science fair program and develop a complementary curriculum on the scientific method.
