Collaboration with others is central to how I seek answers for complex research questions. I value a strong scientific community, which I find both in my immediate colleagues, and my extended research network.


I regularly attend research workshops and conferences that foster interdisciplinary collaboration. I interact with colleagues who are at a variety of career stages, learning from the experiences of established scientists, and growing with other early career researchers.

Conferences that I attend:

  • Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry summer workshop

  • Ocean Sciences Meeting

  • International Workshop on Trait-based Approaches to Ocean Life

Workshops, trainings and committees:

  • 2014 NSF/UNOLS Chief Scientist Training Cruise

  • 2016 NSF Ecological Dissertations in the Aquatic Sciences

  • 2017 Hjort Summer School

  • 2019 and 2022 Trait-based Approaches to Ocean Life steering committee

  • 2021-2023 Mixotrophs and Mixotrophy OCB Working Group co-investigator
