I am a Jersey born yankee who followed her passion for marine science down to the University of Florida. I plan to graduate in May 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in marine science, and hopefully be working towards my masters as well. In addition to my research on sponge restoration in the Middle Keys, I also serve as the program associate for the Challenge 2050 Project on the UF campus. When not working (and even when I am) you can find me rocking out to broadway musicals.

My name is Thomas and I’m a marine sciences student at the University of Florida. I grew up outside of Washington, D.C. so I moved from one swamp to another. I have a passion for the marine environment that stems from my father’s service in the Coast Guard and years of going to beaches in Rhode Island and Florida. When I’m not thinking about the ocean, I’m involved with the Alpha Zeta academic fraternity or playing some sort of music.

2018-Present

I’m a Biology and Marine Sciences major from Fairfax, VA, hoping to pursue a graduate degree and a career in field research. I love all aspects of marine biology, but am especially interested in reef ecology/restoration and wildlife movement patterns. However, I love to broaden my horizons in any way possible and when I’m not working, you can find me traveling, hiking, or just reading a book!
