I am a biologist, avid reader, choral singer, knitter, and general zookeeper.  Oh, and I've been a beekeeper since 2010.  I am fascinated by living things, especially those that are not like people.  In fact, the weirder the better!

My research interests center on temperate marine invertebrates, especially life cycles and larval development.  I am an Associate Research Biologist at Long Marine Lab, where I get to keep my hands wet and mentor student research projects.
