In 2009 I began my PhD program at the University of Washington, where I study the behavioral and physiological stratetgies of intertidal organisms living in extreme conditions. Check out my new website!

I am devoted to rocky intertidal ecology. I am particularly interested in community dynamics, stress physiology, biogeography, and biomechanics—I want to know how these organisms can live in such an extreme habitat and what factors are influencing their success, and I am currently doing so as a PhD student at the University of Washington.
