I am a PhD student in the Baum Lab at the University of Victoria. Our lab seeks to understand how human activities are altering marine ecosystems, and my current research focuses on how human and environmental impacts can affect interactions between corals and their symbiotic algae (Symbiodinium).
I am broadly interested in understanding mechanisms of coral reef resilience. I aim to further our knowledge of interactions between humans and coral reef ecosystems in order to better inform conservation of coral reefs in a changing environment.
When I'm not working on my research, I like to run, swim, hike, and SCUBA dive. I am a conservation photographer, and I enjoy exploring the world through my camera lens.
