Graduate Research Assistant
Horn Point Laboratory
II have lived in Maryland my whole life, fishing in its tributaries and fascinated by the complexity of the Chesapeake as a living estuary. I want to help further our understanding of that complexity in the Chesapeake and in marine systems in general; that understanding can help us figure out how to best balance our interests as a society with our interests as beings who are part of the global environment. I am a Master’s student currently investigating the ecological interactions between Choptank larval fish, their zooplankton prey (tiny drifting animals), and their collective environment.
