Greetings from Berlin, via Italy, hailing from Brooklyn, NY. I just completed my PhD on the population structure of the keystone species the Antarctic silverfish. My research interests involve combining multidisciplinary techniques including genetics, otolith chemistry and trophic analyses to understand the health of Antarctic fish populations in order to gauge what impacts climate change and anthropogenic disturbances will have on them.

I joined the APECS Council for the 2016-17 term and worked in multiple capacities before being elected to the Executive Committee for the 2017-18 term. I am excited to have the opportunity to be part of the APECS ExCom for the 2018-19 term, continuing to support the ambitious projects of the Council, the day to day business of running APECS, and realizing the overarching goals of each ExCom’s mandate: providing opportunities for and supporting early career Polar researchers.
