We have traveled around the globe to sample sawfish saws, but one of the most important places we still need DNA from is Brazil. The only issue is that we are unable to ship any samples out of Brazil due to Brazilian laws. Luckily, this Fulbright Scholarship will allow me to go to Brazil to get DNA from over 100 specimens our collaborator has and do my lab work in that country.

As a DARPA Riser, I shared my research on marine biofilms (communities of bacteria attached to submerged hard surfaces) at a conference in San Diego. I was among 30 early career scientists from across the country to experience this unique opportunity to share my research. ⁠
