Education:

BS, Marine Biology, University of North Carolina at Wilmington
MS, Marine Biology, University of North Carolina at Wilmington

 

Research Interests:

I am interested in studying transparent crustaceans -- pelagic hyperiid amphipods and benthic anemone shrimp in the genus Periclimenes - to understand how these animals structure their tissues to achieve invisibility in their ocean environment.
