I write this blog in the hopes of getting people more interested in and informed about science, entertaining armchair travelers, and providing potentially useful information to people who may want to go off on adventures of their own. I also hope that readers find the content somewhat entertaining although one of many things that international travel has taught me is that not everybody shares my sense of humor.
I am a PhD student in Dr. Jennifer Smith’s Lab at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and have traveled quite extensively to six out of seven continents. My research interests focus mainly on seagrass ecosystems and how they interact with fisheries and adjacent habitat. My travel interests focus mainly on tropical places with surfable waves. Feel free to contact me with questions about science or travel and I’ll do my best to answer them. If I can’t I’ll happily point you in the direction of someone who can.
I will try to refrain from too much incomprehensible scientific jargon on this website as well as equally indecipherable Spanglish ranting.
