My research interests lie in marine microbial ecology and interactions between microbes and their broader oceanographic systems. During my honors aquatic microbiology undergraduate degree at Oregon State University (OSU), I studied the effects of X-ray computed tomography on microbial communities in salt marsh cores, then pivoted to studying microbiomes of bleached corals for my masters degree, which was also from OSU. My PhD work focuses on how plankton interact with each other and their environment.
