I graduated from the University of North Carolina Wilmington with a B.S and honors in marine biology and a B.S. in chemistry. As a part of my honors in marine biology I worked under Dr. Carmelo Tomas studying the temperature dependence of maximum growth rate of several Alexandrium species. I also worked under Dr. Jeffrey Wright isolating toxins and secondary metabolites from dinoflagellates and cyanobacteria for natural products research. I started my graduate research at Georgia Tech in the Kubanek Laboratory in the fall of 2015.

Research Interests

I am interested in studying toxin induction in toxic marine algae species. Particularly, I am interested in studying the chemoreception mechanisms of these algae in detecting predators.
