I am interested in how the environment shapes the behavior and physiology of marine animals. Specifically, my research evaluates how light, climate, and other environmental parameters impact the swimming behavior, depth, and distribution of marine zooplankton and fish. I have two primary research foci. First, I aim to determine the impact of artificial light on zooplankton behavior in coastal ecosystems, selecting study sites along the New Jersey shoreline. Second, I will assess how zooplankton (krill, copepods) and silverfish respond to their environment in the Ross Sea, Antarctica. Zooplankton act as a critical food source for larger predators in marine ecosystems. Hence, changes in their distribution universally impact ocean ecology, from New Jersey to Antarctica.
As a child, I spent countless hours exploring the beaches and rocky shores of New England. It was during this time, while simultaneously filling my pockets with crabs, clams, and sea stars, that I decided to be a marine biologist. Further inspired by passionate educators, I continued to pursue marine science at Eckerd College, and conducted research through NOAA’s Hollings Scholarship. My interest in invertebrate biology led me to Dr. Jonathan Cohen at the University of Delaware, where I studied inducible defenses in crustacean zooplankton. I completed my Ph.D. in May of 2017, and started as an EOAS Postdoctoral Fellow at Rutgers University the following fall.

In 2005 the International Dose-Response Society was created in response to the growing number of scientists, including toxicologists, pharmacologists, biostatisticians, epidemiologists, occupational and environmental medical researchers, and others who have shown interest in better understanding the nature of the dose response in the low dose zone.
The Society is dedicated to the enhancement, exchange, and dissemination of ongoing global research efforts concerning underlying mechanisms of dose dependent transitions in the low dose zone as maybe seen in threshold and hormesis dose-response models .
The Society is also particularly interested in better understanding adaptive responses, their mechanistic basis and how their up-regulation may affect the nature of the dose response in the low dose zone.
The Society strongly encourages the assessment of the implications of such low dose responses in toxicology, risk assessment, risk communication, medicine, numerous areas of biomedical research, and all other biological disciplines including relevant engineering domains dealing with the dose response.
The International Dose-Response Society is administered by the School of Public Health Health Sciences at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

Advances in medicine are taking place at a staggering rate, and what was considered basic science only yesterday is now part of everyday clinical practice. To enrich medical student education beyond classroom lectures and ward and clinic clerkships, and to foster a closer relationship with faculty mentors, the College of Medicine sponsors a long-standing Medical Student Research Program (MSRP) and an innovative Curriculum on Medical Ignorance (CMI). Student research fellows gain familiarity with biologic horizons in both basic and clinical science, acquire a broad grasp of research skills, learn to communicate ideas better, refine clinical problem identification and solving, meet distinguished visiting physicians and scientists, and work closely with faculty and other students at various levels in diverse laboratory and patient care settings both at The University of Arizona and other institutions throughout the world.
Gain understanding of the shifting domains of ignorance, uncertainty, and the unknown: philosophical and psychological foundations and approaches to learning, questioning, and creating "knowledge"; history and development of selected ideas and methods in basic and clinical medical science; mastery by in-depth multi-dimensional exploration of selected timely medical topics.
Improve skills to recognize and deal productively with ignorance, uncertainty, and the unknown: questioning critically and creatively focusing on raising, listening to, analyzing, prioritizing, and answering questions from different points of view; communicating clearly in different media with various audiences; collaborating effectively with different people and other resources.
Reinforce positive attitudes and values of curiosity, optimism, humility, self-confidence, and skepticism.
