About Me
I am an ecosystem ecologist, educator, and coastal protection and restoration advocate with GIS analysis expertise working in coastal wetland and aquatic ecosystems. My research focuses on marine conservation and involves evaluating the challenges and changes that affect coastal environments and their organisms. My goal is to use the best available science to explore anthropogenically impacted habitats to inform future coastal management plans. I received my M.Sc. from Texas A&M University at Galveston along with my Graduate Certificate in Geographic Information Science (GIS). I have research experience in laboratories at Texas A&M University at Galveston (Armitage), Louisiana Tech University (Hill), and Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (Roberts). I am always happy to conduct innovative research and happily seek new opportunities of leadership and collaboration. ​
