My research focuses on the investigation of biogeochemical mechanisms including sulfate reduction and sulfur oxidation in the Santa Barbara Basin

I received my Bachelor’s degree from Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University (FAMU) where I majored Environmental Science with a concentration in Toxicology/Risk Analysis. At my undergraduate university my research looked at creating a material that absorbs oil through organic chemistry and electrospinning. I also received internship investigating microbial lake productivity in the Sierra Nevada Watershed at University of Southern California (USC) through the C-DEBI (Center for Dark Energy Biosphere Investigation)course, and another internship at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) investigating Turbinaria Ornata, an invasive macrogalge, in the coral reefs of Mo’orea . Outside of research I like to go scuba diving, movies, practice playing my drums, cooking and traveling.
