STRI Intern

Hello! I am thrilled to be returning to Panama to work with the O’Dea lab. I am studying fish movement and invasion in the Panama Canal using otolith geochemistry. I am interested in using stable isotopes to better understand the movement of marine fishes into the freshwater Lake Gatun. I hope to be able to use my research to inform fisheries conservation plans and gain a better understanding of the processes underlying natural phenomena.

I graduated from Washington State University in May 2022 with a BSc in Biology and a minor in Environmental Sciences. I will be attending University of California Santa Cruz in Fall 2023 to begin my PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.

Favorite organisms: Arctic Grayling Trout, Mobular Ray.
