About

DCIM100GOPRO

I am a Ph.D. student in the Curriculum for the Environment and Ecology at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. I am a member of the  Castillo Lab studying coral ecophysiology and climate change. I received my B.S. in Marine Biology with a minor in Chemistry from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I am currently interested in effects of predicted climate change (ocean acidification and ocean warming) on multiple Caribbean scleractinian corals.

My undergraduate honors research, entitled Effects of seawater pH on the chemistry of the gastrovascular cavity of the corals Montastraea cavernosa and Duncanopsammia axifugaused microelectrodes to quantify diel shifts in pH within the coral’s gastrovascular cavity under normal and reduced pH.

For more information on skills and experiences, please see my CV.
