I have  been a student in the Phycology Lab since Fall 2010. I did my undergraduate work at UC Santa Cruz in Marine Biology. I worked for the Partnership of Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans (PISCO) until I became a student at Moss Landing.   My thesis work focuses on intertidal species interactions between algae and invertebrates and how intertidal substrate variation may affect these interaction strengths.  This work has important implications for understanding how environments such as the intertidal may cope with biological and anthropogenic disturbances.  I love the intertidal and am a serious algae nerd!
