Research Interest

research identity in STEM graduate students, outreach, and department culture. Biology education


Saint Leo University - BS in Biology and Environmental Science with high honors
University of South Florida - MS in Biology concentration in Biology Education


I am interested in the dynamic of STEM graduate students' research identity and their motivations and impediments to conduct outreach. Specifically, I would like to investigate whether graduate students' willingness to conduct outreach aligns with their interests in science as a communal aspect, and whether these students experience cultural or recognition barriers in pursuing their interests.
