I recently moved to Hawaii to pursue a PhD using machine learning methods to study Marine Biology. I studied Biology at Kenyon College in Ohio. My passion for Marine Biology comes from studying abroad in Bocas del Toro, Panama where I studied impacts of artificial reef structures on local fish assemblages. I am hoping to expand my research into Machine Learning and how we can effectively assess coral reef resilience through protein sequences.

Research Interests
Current research interests include applications of natural language processing on genetic information. My main interests relate to assessing coral reef resilience to climate change. I hope to identify patterns in reef protein sequences to information restoration efforts on which corals will be more resilient to novel ocean conditions.
