Research Interest

I'm intrigued by how climate change influences the life cycle of marine organisms. I'm interested in investigating how multiple ocean acidification stressors can impact the carbonate system and their effect on the oyster life cycle along the Georgia coast.  

Currently, I'm exploring the growth and survival of oyster larvae in high pH environments in a hatchery setting.
