I am currently a PhD Candidate in Biological Oceanography and a U.S. Department of Defense National Defense Science & Engineering Graduate Research Fellow at North Carolina State University’s Center for Marine Sciences and Technology in Morehead City, North Carolina, and am advised by Dr. David Eggleston.
My research focuses on developing translatable scientific information and tools to better conserve and restore imperiled coastal shoreline habitats and ecosystems. I use field-based approaches and computer simulation modeling to better inform adaptive shoreline management to enhance coastal resilience. As a member of the Eggleston lab, I am involved in basic and applied ecological research that aims to address fundamental questions related to coastal marine ecosystem processes.
