I am an undergraduate student studying Biological Science with concentration in Marine Biology at California State University Fullerton in Southern California. My diverse interests include marine and coastal ecology, population genetics and zooplankton biogeography, coastal oceanography and anthropogenic effects on marine coastal environments, as well as marine mammal conservation. I'm also interested in climate change mitigation, as well as ocean and environmental policy. Currently, I'm funded through a competitive academic stipend provided by the National Science Foundation to the Southern California Ecosystems Research Program (SCERP) at CSU Fullerton. I work in a fish reproductive physiology lab with Dr. Kristy Forsgren and study the effects of EDC's (endocrine disrupting compounds) on gonadal development of Pacific Sanddab (Citharichthys sordidus) within the Southern California Bight.
