Under the guidance of Drs. Lorenzo Ciannelli and Cliff Ryer from the Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Newport, I am looking at the effects of temperature and hypoxia on the growth of juvenile English sole Parophrys vetulus, and larval Dungeness crab Cancer magister. The experimental set-up includes a vast array of PVC, Tygon tubing, ball valves and flowmeters, and is composed of eighteen tanks, occupied by both fish and crabs. The result of this project will enable us to make predictions about coastal and estuarine habitat under varying environmental conditions.

I graduated from Purdue University in 2007 with a B.S. in Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences. Subsequently, I worked for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife as an experimental biology aide for a variety of projects working with bivalves, hagfish and salmon. In between winter spawning seasons, I worked as a fisheries observer based out of Coos Bay and Newport, but have fished most of the Oregon Coast. I am currently pursuing a Master of Science in Marine Resource Management.
