I am an undergraduate rising senior at Brown concentrating in marine biology. I am joining the Leslie Lab this summer as an RI-EPSCoR Summer Undergraduate Research Fellow (SURF); it will be my first time ever working in a lab and I am very excited about it. I am very particularly interested in marine conservation and tropical marine biology. I hope to one day do research with orca whales or white sharks. I am also a member of the varsity women’s crew team at Brown.
