I received my master from FIU in 2013 and I’m currently PhD candidate. My dissertation research focuses on the context-dependent nature of herbivore-algae interactions. I am examining how factors such as structural complexity, sedimentation, predation risk and seasonality impact how herbivorous fishes can control algal community dynamics
