I am a recent graduate of Bowdoin College where I studied biology and education. Post-grad, I will be pursuing a Fulbright in Australia at the Australian Institute of Marine Science as a research technician. I am working towards a research career in marine biology with a focus on climate change impacts on coral reef ecosystems. I am also aiming to find ways to combine my passion for environmental education and education equity. Within conservation, I hope to become an advocate for people of color and low-income communities by increasing access to this field.
