I am a PhD student in Marine Biology and Biological Oceanography PhD Program at USC. I will be studying the evolution of coral and sea anemone symbiosis under the mentorship of Dr. Carly Kenkel. I am recently finished my MS in Biology at CSULA with Dr. Andres Aguilar studying depth-based adaptation in rockfish. In addition to my research, I have devoted my time to being a mentor and various outreach efforts in order to advance justice, equity, diversity and inclusion in academic spaces and the broader STEM communities.
