As international liaison for the NOAA Ocean Acidification Program (2017-2018), I worked to build global partnerships, develop scientific capacity worldwide, and elevate awareness of the need for ocean chemistry science through multilateral conferences.
To do so, I collaborated with a range of international stakeholders in academic institutions, intergovernmental bodies, governments, and industry.
I completed my PhD in biological oceanography in the MIT/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Joint Program in 2017. While there, I organized and led numerous field expeditions, managed research funding, and collaborated with a broad range of researchers and technologists to develop new tools to study coral reef biodiversity, resulting in ten peer-reviewed publications. You can find media coverage of my work here, here, and here.
I believe that the combination of innovative technologies and evidence-based public policy is required to foster the sustainable use of marine resources.
