I am currently a 2nd year PhD student in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department at UC Santa Cruz in Giacomo Bernardi’s lab.
I received my masters degree in Marine Science (December 2014) from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia and was a member of the Michael Berumen’s Reef Ecology Lab. My thesis was on reef fish assemblages across latitude in the Red Sea. Read the publication here.
I did my BSc in Biology with emphasis in Marine Biology (2008) at UC Davis. I did my undergrad thesis on geographical range shifts of intertidal invertebrates of Bodega Bay with my advisor, Eric Sanford at the Bodega Marine Laboratory. See some of the invertebrates I surveyed for this project here.
