PI: NO, undergraduate researcher
Taxa Studied: Invertebrate Animals
Techniques Employed: Sectioning for Histology, Sectioning for Electron Microscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy, Epifluoresence Microscopy, Confocal Microscopy, Time-Lapse Microscopy
Research Description: At the current stage of my career, my research aims to study how the environment shapes development (plasticity) and dispersal of marine invertebrates of both costal and deep-sea invertebrates. Another goal of my research is to investigate the molecular mechanisms behind metamorphosis. The final section of my research is the evolution of larval form and how benthic and pelagic assemblages may influence these morphologies and novel adaptations.
