About I am a research assistant in the Baum Lab at the University of Victoria. Aside from doing random lab duties I work on the Kiritimati Island research project where I am a part of the coral team. We are looking at how the corals respond to stress such as human disturbance, global change, and El Niño. Traveling is a big part of my life and I am generally always planning my next adventure. I have been to all 50 states, and 27 countries and look forward to increasing that number. On my free time I like to SCUBA dive, read, take photos, hike, and camp.
