About my research:

I am a first year Masters student in Kristen Buck’s lab, which studies the biogeochemistry of trace metals in the ocean. I recently started working on a project looking at the remineralization of iron after a phytoplankton bloom. Prior to USF, I received my BS in chemistry at PLU in Tacoma, WA, where I was a part of a polymer research group. After graduation, I took off five years where I worked in pharmacy and quality assurance.

Why USFCMS?

Attending USF was an unexpected path. As a west coaster, Florida was completely new to me. But the more I learned about USF CMS, the more it seemed like the right fit. I especially valued the interdisciplinary nature of the program, and when I visited, I knew I wanted to study chemical oceanography here. The research is exciting, and the community is supportive. And of course, the campus is the ideal location for marine research, with Tampa bay right in our backyard.
