Research interests

I am a Marine Biologist within the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as well as a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. I am mostly interested in the macro-ecology and biodiversity of mesophotic coral ecosystems (MCEs) in the Pacific basin. My geographic experience in MCEs is between the Hawaiian Archipelago and American Samoa. Currently, I am leading a multi-year project to study the MCEs of American Samoa. My main areas of interest are scleractinian and antipatharian corals.
