Profile Biography 
I obtained my bachelor's degree in Marine Biology at the University of Miami. Before I attended graduate school, I worked at the Miami-Dade County Department of Environmental Resources Management. Then, I attended North Carolina State University-College of Veterinary Medicine where I completed my doctoral degree in aquatic animal health in the Comparative Biomedical Sciences program. At the University of Mississippi as Postdoctoral Research Associate and at Baylor University as a Research Scientist, I studied deleterious effects that stressors and pollutants in the environment have on aquatic (freshwater and marine) ecosystems. Currently, I am a Research Assistant Professor at Florida International University in the Southeast Environmental Research Center. I am interested in continuing to study environmental stressor impacts on aquatic organisms, specifically impacts on the immune system and disease susceptibility in fish.
