Research Interest

My research focuses on understanding the intricate relationship between climate change and the ecological connectivity of oysters, sharks, and humans in the South Atlantic Bight. I am particularly intrigued by the multifaceted impacts of coastal acidification on the carbonate system and its repercussions on the oyster population, the seasonality of Vibrio bacteria in coastal Georgia and its resident sharks, and the socio-economic dynamics of BIPOC oyster fishers in the region, aiming to understand their unique challenges and opportunities within the context of shifting environmental conditions.​By investigating these mechanisms, I seek to shed light on how climate change-induced shifts may influence the coastal ecosystem.​If you are interested in learning more about my research or exploring potential collaborations, please feel free to reach out via email. I welcome the opportunity to engage in discussions and collaborations aimed at advancing our understanding of climate change impacts on marine ecosystems.
