I am a PhD student at Stanford University working with Dr. Fiorenza Micheli.  I am interested in how marine communities are structured and how stressors influence community and ecosystem dynamics. I have a broad research background including: analyzing coral microbiome community structure, fisheries and conservation policy within Canada, seagrass nursery use, and El Niño impacts on coral cover.  I have used a combination of meta-analytic, bioinformatic, and scuba diving to explore these questions.
