About Me

I am a recent Ph.D. graduate from the University of South Florida and a current Biological Scientist at the University of Florida. I have previously held positions as a Postdoc and Courtesy Faculty at the Everglades Wetland Research Park at Florida Gulf Coast University in Naples, Florida.


My most recent research projects have focused on mangrove soil carbon dynamics after a hurricane in both Puerto Rico and Florida, created wetland nutrient retention, red tide in the Gulf of Mexico, and algal bloom reduction in Florida waterbodies.
