I obtained my BS in Zoology from the University of Rhode Island in 1999. In 2003, I graduated from UNCW with a MS in Biology where I studied the evolutionary relationships of coralline red algae using molecular and morphological techniques. Currently, I am a specialist in the intensive culture of rotifers, a zooplankton essential for the bioencapsulation and transfer of essential nutrients to first-feeding marine fish larvae. I am also assisting in the development of high density rotifer culture experiments using alternative feeds.

Thesis: "Phylogenetic reassessment of the Mastophoroideae (Corallinaceae, Rhodophyta) using molecular and morphological data".
