PhD Student, Georgetown University, USA

I joined the lab in 2011 shortly after graduating from Georgetown, and have worked in the field as a research assistant in the fall of 2011 and 2012. Prior to starting as Research Associate, I worked as a research technician at Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute on a manatee radiotelemetry project, and have also contributed to projects with the Whale and Dolphin Conservation, Sarasota Dolphin Research Program, World Wildlife Fund, and the research lab of Dr. Tim Beach of Georgetown University. My research interests are concerned with the evolutionary drivers of senescence in cetaceans, and how these drivers may impact reproduction.
