I am a joint doctoral student at San Diego State and UC Davis.

I am trying to understand how kelp habitat loss affects nearshore and offshore food webs across the Aleutian Islands. I use biochemical tracers called stable isotopes to understand trophic ecology of consumers when kelp is present versus absent. I also study the ecology of fear and how abalone respond to waterborne predator cues.
