Science, Communication, and Community in a Warming World

For my PhD research, I am working with the Hog Island and Tomales Bay Oyster Companies to develop strategies for improving oysters' ability to withstand temperature-driven disease outbreaks.

Public scholarship and Activism are key components of my work - I strive to clearly communicate climate and ocean science, while amplifying marginalized voices and perspectives.

As a graduate student at UC Davis, I am studying the effects of warming on temperature-related disease outbreaks in California oyster farms and whether we can .


Public Engagement

Communicating About How climate Change Affects The Ocean and Our Communities

I write and speak about ocean + climate science, civically engaged science & the need for justice, equity, diversity & inclusion.
