I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Cetacean Conservation and Genomics Lab, part of the Marine Mammal Institute at Oregon State University's Hatfield Marine Science Center. I am also a 2018-2019 Fulbright Arctic Initiative Scholar. Before moving to Oregon, I earned my PhD from the Joint Program in Oceanography between MIT and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and was a 2017 Knauss Marine Policy Fellow in the Office of International Affairs at NOAA.
I am particularly interested in the cohesion of science and policy and have focused my efforts on building a strong foundation in both disciplines.
