I am a graduating Biology student from the University of Oregon. I came to UO from Gig Harbor, Washington where I developed a deep love for the ocean. I've participated in two deep sea cruises where I helped to analyze larval migration patterns through brine pools in the Gulf of Mexico. I am mainly interested in creatures of the deep sea, but look forward to the Visions'14 expedition and learning more about the geological aspects of the deep sea. Outside of academics I enjoy hiking, tide pooling, scuba diving and exploring new places.
