Biography

As this year’s Chesapeake Conservation Corps Member, I manage the lab at the Center while also conducting my own research project centered on the invasive Asian clam in the Potomac River. I recently earned my bachelor’s degree in environmental science from Washington College in Chestertown, MD where I focused most of my studies on the Chesapeake Bay. While in school, I was involved with two research projects regarding nutrient cycling in the bay. This experience led me to completing my thesis on nitrogen cycling in oyster reefs. I have a great passion for working in the Chesapeake Bay area and expanding my knowledge of the ecosystem.
