Advisor: Dr. Jose Eirin-Lopez

I’m a senior at FIU majoring in Biology with a track in environmental policy, and a certificate in Latin American and Caribbean Studies. I have been with Dr.Eirin-Lopez’s Environmental Epigenetics Lab investigating coral epigenetics, under the supervision of PhD candidate Serena Hackerott since 2020. My research is focused on the metabolism and symbiosis of Acropora cervicornis in varying nutrient concentrations to better understand anthropogenic impacts on corals.
