I’m a graduate student at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. Hailing from Utah but born in Las Vegas, I just received degrees in marine biology and creative writing from Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA. This fall, I’m starting research on the effects of ocean acidification on crustacean exoskeletons!
As a marine biology major and a competitive swimmer, most of my life revolves around water, and I’m looking forward to sharing those loves with posts about swim sets, marine biologist experiences, and not-so-fuzzy animals. I can’t wait to see where my studies at Scripps take me, and I hope you’re excited about seeing the resulting pictures!
