About Me

I graduated from Colorado College in 2017 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology (organisms, evolution and ecology track). I am currently a PhD student working on quantifying persistent man-made chemical pollutants, specifically PFAS compounds, in water and biota from Galveston Bay and the northern Gulf of Mexico. As a part of this work, I am also using bioinformatics to attempt biomarker discovery and to create models that will aid in further understanding an organisms adaptive potential under stressful environmental conditions.
