My research interests mainly focus around marine invertebrates in extreme environments (i.e. caves, deep sea) and the use of next-generation sequencing to study their evolution, adaptations, diversity, and interactions with their environment. I will be involved in the DEEPEND consortium as a research assistant for Dr. Bracken-Grissom's team at Florida International University. Our research will use modern molecular techniques to examine the diversity of marine invertebrates in the deep gulf, with a special emphasis on crustaceans and cephalopods.
