I'm a Postdoctoral Scholar working at the Centre National de Séquençage where I'm currently investigating the genomic and functional diversity of reef-building corals .  My research is broadly centered around integrative environmental physiology and I'm particularly interested in the molecular and cellular underpinnings of organismal-level responses to climate change drivers in marine symbioses.

Prior to beginning my postdoctoral work, I completed a Ph.D. in Integrative Biology at the University of California at Berkeley, and earned B.S. degrees in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and Zoology from Michigan State University.  I also follow Major League Soccer (Seattle Sounders and LA Galaxy) and have a deep appreciation for the works of Ursula K. Le Guin. If you haven't read her novel The Dispossessed you should check it out!
