I work with Victoria Orphan and focus on the microbial ecology of seagrass meadows and the role of microbes in marine ecosystems, particularly related to carbon sequestration and climate change. This is done largely using field experiments at the Kerckhoff Marine Laboratory and a combination of computational and experimental microbiological techniques. I received my B.S. in Chemistry from Tufts in 2017 before working at the Broad Institute in proteomics. I arrived at Caltech in 2020 and have enjoyed doing outreach through GO-Outdoors, playing in the Caltech Wind Orchestra, and singing classical music.
