As an avid angler, I grew up fascinated by the intricacies of aquatic life. The amazing complexity of ecosystems captured my curiosity and eventually led me to pursue a PhD at the Marine Science Center at Northeastern University, where I am currently working under the auspices of my advisor, Dr. Jonathan Grabowski.
My dissertation involves taking an interdisciplinary approach to fisheries management and aims to inform policy by accounting for both ecological and social interactions. Over the past three years, I have worked directly with both commercial and recreational anglers on projects related to diet and health of striped bass. This has allowed me to ask relevant questions regarding the sustainability of New England fisheries.
