I'm a PhD candidate studying the effects of climate change on marine consumer-resource dynamics across scales. My work includes building spatial models to characterize how receding Arctic sea ice has altered geographic overlap and per-capita interactions among species of groundfish in the Bering Sea, as well as conducting experiments in aquaria to estimate the impact of ocean warming and acidification on sea urchin grazing behavior. My previous research, in the labs of Drs. Benjamin Ruttenberg and Jennifer O'Leary, includes the responses of marine communities to disturbance, recruitment dynamics of marine invertebrates, and large-scale processes structuring the biogeographic ranges of temperate fishes. When I'm not working, I like to be out in nature - birding, foraging around the intertidal, diving, or trying to surf.
