Undergraduate Researchers

I work with several amazing undergraduates who help me out and cary out their own research in the lab every semester. Thanks to their amazing hard work, we are learning so much about how corals respond under projected global change! If you are interested in joining us, send me an email! I often have 1-2 positions every semester.
