I am an honorary member and Faculty Representative of the First Year Honor Society, Alpha Lambda Delta and serve as a committee member on the Institutional Review Board and Undergraduate Research Advisory Board. I also serve as the Advisor for the Biology Club.
My research focuses on the endosymbiont bacteria of sea anemones. Many of these bacteria can provide beneficial functions for their host organisms, for example by producing nutrients, antibiotics or other chemical defenses. I am working with students to isolate and identify anemone-associated bacteria, then to explore their biological functions.
