PhD candidate
PI: Rob Toonen
Graduate program: Marine Biology

I am broadly interested in a wide range of topics dealing with the ecology and evolution of marine organisms. My previous research, during the master and undergraduate studies, has been primarily focused in the taxonomy and systematics of Scyphozoa.
For my Ph.D. dissertation, I am focused on the role of the coral-algae interaction in coral health.
