I have been passionate about science and biology since my first interaction with a horsecrab - and a marine biologist - at my local library in Charleston, SC. I was introduced to wetland science as an undergrad and began studying coastal wetlands in grad school. I am currently a Postdoctoral Associate with Dr. Margaret Palmer at the University of Maryland. I investigate the drivers and patterns of carbon dynamics in interior and coastal wetlands in the Delmarva Peninsula. When not immersed in coastal ecology and wetland science, I enjoy being on the water, camping, cooking, and a good board game.
