I am a second-year Ph.D. student in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, in the joint program with The Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole. I am co-advised by Heather and Linda Deegan. I received my Bachelor’s from Tufts University in Biology in 2006, and my Master’s from URI-GSO in Biological Oceanography in 2009. I am interested in the ecology of coastal systems, particularly salt marshes and rocky shores. I will focus on the impact of climate change on these systems, and how climate change will impact productivity and ecosystem services.
