I am a nearshore marine ecologist with passion for natural history, ecophysiology, and educational equity. I am currently a postdoctoral research associate in the Emily Carrington Lab at the University of Washington. My work explores the effects of climate change on coastal marine species.

I am interested in the behavioral and physiological strategies for survival employed by animals in extreme environments. The intertidal zone is ideal for the study of global change because these organisms are subjected to rapidly changing marine and terrestrial environments.

My research focuses on thermal stress, ocean acidification, and the role of variability in shaping organismal tolerance. I combine manipulative field ecology, observational surveys, measurement of environmental variables, physiological assays, and new technological tools.

The best of both worlds

Avoiding high temperature at a snail’s pace

A snail can tell us a lot about global warming
