I received my undergraduate degree in 2004 from the University of Miami in marine biology. From there I went on to the University of North Carolina Wilmington and completed an MS under Dr. Carmelo Tomas that focused on describing an Amphidinium species of microalgae. After that I worked at the College of Charleston in Dr. Jack DiTullio's lab for three years and helped conduct research that focused on DMSP production by phytoplankton. Currently I am starting the first year of my PhD at Southern Cross University working under Prof. Bradley Eyre and Dr. Isaac Santos. The focus of my project is on the biogeochemistry of carbonates in coral reef ecosystems, particularly involving permeable sediments.
