I am an interdisciplinary marine community ecologist interested in the science and politics of marine bio-monitoring. I currently study how patterns of coral reef biodiversity and functional groups are affected by environmental and anthropogenic drivers (and methodology - including environmental DNA sampling). I am also curious about what the fields of science and technology studies and political ecology might offer towards more equity-centered and community-based marine conservation initiatives.
** I am looking for full-time academic and non-academic (industry) positions for Fall 2023/Spring 2024 that are at the intersection of biodiversity science and marine conservation. I am particularly interested in projects and opportunities that allow me to apply and further develop socio-ecological and critical perspectives. **
