Bio

Growing up in New Jersey, I naturally became close with the marine world. Countless fishing trips and days at the beach guided me to pursuing an undergraduate degree in biological oceanography at Rutgers. While at Rutgers, I started to work with shellfish and developed a deep interest in aquaculture and fisheries.  After graduating, I originally planned to start an oyster farm, but after several temporary jobs at different clam and oyster farms and hatcheries, all I had were more questions. How can I make farming easier and more profitable? Now I am a student working to better understand how to optimize oyster growth in aquaculture systems while developing physical tools that can help relay this information to farmers and researchers.
