Biography

I’m a community ecologist interested in the legacy of environmental stress on organism performance – how organisms’ past experiences, either direct or indirect, can affect their responses to their environment. Prior to SERC, my graduate work at Northeastern University focused on the transgenerational and early life effects of predation risk on prey performance on rocky intertidal shores. At SERC, I’m exploring legacy effects in oysters in the Chesapeake Bay.
