Why did you choose to study / research environmental science?

Ever since I can remember I have loved being outside and learning about the environment around me. When I was really young I used to go “salamander hunting” with my aunts. I was always on whale watches and walking nature trails with my family. When I got to college no other major seemed more fitting. I am very passionate about conservation and research and enjoy sharing what I know with others. My hope is that with this major I will always have a job that I love.

What is your research project about?

Collecting and compiling information pertaining to marine ecological engineers and temperate reefs off the New England coast.

Interesting fact about yourself?

Sometimes I eat lemon with the peel on it.
