I am an Assistant Research Scientist at the University of Georgia's Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources. My research program focuses on the population dynamics, life history and ecology of fishes. I currently work mainly on Atlantic, shortnose, and Gulf Sturgeon. Some of my previous work has included studies on gag grouper, Atlantic tripletail, bottlenose dolphins, salt marsh herons, and coastal fish communities. I teach several fisheries lectures and labs for undergraduate and graduate students.

In 2018, I earned my PhD from the University of Georgia's Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources. My advisor was Dr. Doug Peterson. After graduation, I remained at Warnell as a postdoc.

From 2010-2013, I was an instructor at Coastal Carolina University, where I taught introductory marine science classes and labs.

In 2010, I received my MS in Coastal Marine and Wetland Studies from the Marine Science Department at Coastal Carolina University. Under my advisor, Dr. Rob Young, my research focused on interactions between bottlenose dolphins and salt marsh herons. The dolphins I studied have been featured in several nature documentary programs.

My undergraduate degree in Marine Biology is from Roger Williams University. During my time as an undergraduate, I completed an REU internship at Shoals Marine Laboratory under Dr. Willy Bemis.
