Find out about my latest adventures in research.
Today I submitted a manuscript on a spawning detection method I developed with Drs. Pete Countway and Richard Wahle over the last two years. Unlike my previously… Read more “Developing an eDNA technique to detect spawning events!”
After defending my Ph.D. in April on the mysterious and alluring giant sea scallop (Placopecten magellanicus), I jumped at the opportunity to join the Yund Lab for… Read more “Exploring blue mussel populations in Downeast Maine”
My most recent research project has been in collaboration with my advisor Dr. Richard Wahle at the Darling Marine Center and Dr. Peter Countway at Bigelow Laboratory… Read more “Developing a molecular technique to detect scallop spawning events in the field”
