I am very excited to begin graduate research with the Jordaan and McCormick Labs on the effects of realistic stressors on fish populations. I hope to address how stressors change temporally and spatially throughout ontogeny of anadromous fishes and how the effects of these stressors change at each stage of development. It’s important to identify stressors that co-occur and test for interacting effects on organisms, particularly within the scope of climate change and deteriorating water quality. I plan to collaborate with researchers abroad, especially in China, where aquaculture is highly developed, but waterways have been radically altered by dams and water pollution.
I love science outreach and am involved in Science Café, and Graduate Women in STEM’s Outreach Committee. Currently, I’m working with other Life Science graduate students on a new outreach blog. More to come soon!
