I graduated from UCSB in the spring with a B.S. in Biological Sciences and a minor in Studio Art. My role in the lab is to cultivate, isolate, and conduct genomic analysis of PHB-degrading microbes found in marine environments. The research I am doing will aid in the development of bioplastics that are degradable in marine environments. When I am not in the lab I like to go on hikes, read and draw.
