Office: Baruch Marine Field Lab 206
Lab: Baruch Marine Field Lab 121
In addition to my appointment as a Research Assistant Professor within the Baruch Institute for Marine and Coastal Sciences, I co-advise graduate students through U of SC's School of the Earth, Ocean and Environment. I am also the Research Coordinator at the North Inlet - Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Georgetown, South Carolina. I'm responsible for facilitating research within the Reserve, helping run the System-Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP), and developing my own research group. If you're interested in collaborating, have questions about North Inlet, or want to visit the Reserve for field work, don't hesitate to get in touch!
