I am a Ph.D. student in the lab of Dr. Joseph Sisneros at the University of Washington. My research uses the plainfin midshipman fish to investigate the auditory neural mechanisms of underwater sound source localization and reproductive state-dependent changes in auditory sensitivity.
Previously, I was a M.S. student at the University of Minnesota - Duluth in the lab of Dr. Allen Mensinger. In the Mensinger Lab, I utilized behavioral and physiological techniques to investigate the auditory and mechanosensory systems of the oyster toadfish.
