Marine biology has been a passion of mine since I was a child, growing up in Indiana. Since then, I have graduated with a degree in Marine Biology from the College of Charleston and began my graduate career at Nicholls State University in the Master’s in Marine and Environmental Biology program. There, I studied exoskeletal degradation during the molting cycle in blue crabs. My main research interests include marine invertebrate ecology, physiology, and zoology.
