Research Experience
Graduate Research, Aug 2009 - Aug 2011! Florida State University, Oceanography Department, Tallahassee, FL ! Project: Seamount biogeography, deep-sea coral community composition and mapping ! Foci: For my thesis research, I coupled GIS and video data to spatially characterize deep-sea coral community composition within the Makapuu coral bed offshore of Oahu, Hawaii, while also examining relationships to physical variables at multiple spatial scales. I also investigated the spatial and temporal dynamics of crinoid abundance within Makapuu. As a graduate research assistant, I used GIS to geographically analyze and map ocean features.

NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU), Sep - Nov 2008! ! Bermuda Institute for Ocean Sciences, St. Georges, Bermuda ! ! ! ! Project: The impact of global change on the new recruits of a scleractinian coral, Porites asteorides Focus: I worked with Dr. Samantha de Putron investigating the effects of global change, including ocean acidication and increased sea surface temperature, on the calcication and zooxanthellae density of coral recruits. In addition, I participated in SCUBA reef health surveys and BATS (Bermuda-Atlantic Time Series) cruise from November 12-16 on the R/V Atlantic Explorer in the waters offshore of Bermuda. Summer Student Fellow, Jun - Aug 2008 Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, MA ! ! Project: Biogeography and Geochemical Dating of the Deep-Sea Coral Population of the Drake Passage Focus: I worked with Kathy Scanlon (USGS) and Dr. Laura Robinson (WHOI) to better understand and map (using GIS) past and present deep-water coral distribution. U-series dating techniques also were performed. I undertook sampling training (core, grab, box core, and Niskin bottle deployment) on the R/ V Tioga as part of the Summer Fellow program. I also received chemical hygiene and radiation worker training while at WHOI.

Independent Research, 2007 School of International Training, Conducted in Mazumbai Forest Reserve, northern Tanzania Project: The Effects of Physical Gradients on the Size and Spatial Distribution of Ocotea usambarensis Focus: Self-designed project on the arboreal biogeography of a montane rainforest in terms of physical gradients to investigate geographic determinants for individual occurrences of Ocotea usambarensis.

NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU), Jun - Aug 2007! ! Nyanza Project, Bard College and University of Arizona Conducted in Lake Tanganyika, Tanzania ! ! Project: An evaluation of niche and neutral theories using the gastropod community distribution Focus: I worked with Justin Meyer, Genifer Lara, and Dr. Ellinor Michel in the evaluation of niche and neutral theories of biogeography and biodiversity using the gastropod community in the littoral zone of the lake with SCUBA sampling methods.

Field Courses
Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Program, 2007 School for International Training, Tanzania ! Description: The program provides environmental and conservation biology seminars with topics ranging from wildlife management to resource partitioning to nutrient gradients. Ecological eld studies were also undertaken in Tanzanian National Parks, such as Serengeti and Tarangire. The program also involved anthropological components, such as village homestays in both periurban and rural contexts.

Coral Reef Ecology Fieldwork, Jun 2006 Roatan, Honduras Description: A Rhodes College-sponsored lab course in which students are trained in SCUBA eldwork, sh/coral surveying and identication, coastal anthropogenic interactions, marine ecology, and experimental marine biology. !

Field Management
GIS Applications within Archaeology/Unit Excavation Supervisor, Jan. June 2009! Rhodes College Archaeology Department Responsibilities: I worked with Dr. Milton Moreland (Rhodes College) and Rhodes archaeological/ cultural resource management afliates with emphasis placed on mapping excavated eldsites and surrounding areas via GIS and compiling data from previous excavations for publication. I also served as a spatial data collection/unit supervisor for the summer excavation site.
