For the past three years I worked as a research associate at the University of Hawai‘i .  Much of my work there focused on contemporary microbiological methods, particularly collection, processing, and sequencing of genomic/transcriptomic activity of microbial life in the oligotrophic ocean. At CIGLR I will be working on the microcystis buoyancy experiments. Through this project, I hope to further our understanding of vertical distributions and migrations of microcystis in order to better inform HABs models.
