I graduated from Texas A&M University at Galveston in 2015 with my Bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology. As a student, I volunteered in the Marine mammal lab and my undergraduate research project focused on studying the mating tactics of female Indo- Pacific bottlenose dolphins. I also volunteered in the seafood safety lab where I collected oysters from west Galveston Bay to enumerate harmful Vibrio bacteria. As a research assistant in Dr. Quigg’s lab, I will be working on the ADDOMEx project to interpret the effects oil spills have on phytoplankton.
