About Me

I am a first-generation college graduate interested in how climate change drives thermal physiology responses across latitudinal gradients. I completed my undergraduate work at the University of The Bahamas, after which I worked as a biologist throughout the islands of the Bahamas, engaging in general fieldwork with rock iguanas, Anolis lizards, land crabs and Bahama swallows. I previously worked as an Assistant Curator at The Bahamas National Trust. I  am a Proud Bahamian, originating from Jamaica.
