B.S. Marine Biology, Eckerd College

Research Interests
Harmful algae, phytoplankton taxonomy

Current Activity
As an analyst in the Microscopy Laboratory, I monitor water samples collected throughout the state of Florida for the presence of harmful algal bloom species. I also identify other phytoplankton species present in the water samples for community analysis.


FWC Facts:
Red tides have been documented along Florida's Gulf coast since the 1840s and likely occurred earlier. Fish kills around Tampa Bay were mentioned in the logs of Spanish explorers.
