I am currently a policy advisor in the Global and Northern Affairs Bureau of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, where I work to advance Canada’s international oceans priorities.

Previously, as international liaison for the NOAA Ocean Acidification Program (2017-2018), I worked to build global partnerships and develop scientific capacity worldwide.

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.
