About me…


My first discovery of the California sea hare Aplysia in Tomales Bay, CA

I am broadly interested in what drives variation within and among marine populations.  I LOVE studying life forms that photosynthesize (i.e,. phytoplankton, seaweeds, and seagrasses) and I conduct my research using a combination of field experiments, lab mesocosms, and genetic tools.

In addition to my research, I care deeply about being an effective mentor and educator.  I have been the primary mentor of one high school student and four undergraduate students.  When it comes to teaching, I have served as a teaching assistant for many different types of ecology courses.  My career goals are to become a professor and bring the Kollars Lab into existence!  Follow my journey on my blog!

Current position: PhD Candidate in Population Biology at the University of California, Davis, Stachowicz Lab.
