NSU Experience

The biology program at NSU gave me the tools I needed for future success through the unrivaled passion of the professors and the ability to experience what I was learning about firsthand through field and lab work. The small class sizes allow for personal relationships with your professors and peers, and act as the necessary foundation for future inspiration and proclivity towards a given field. The best thing I did at NSU was to take classes that scared me, or in subjects that I didn't know much about. In those classes, you learn the most about your interests and gain a broader perspective on the synergistic world we live in.

My current research focuses on trace metal biogeochemistry in seawater and the metal quotas of heterotrophic bacteria. Follow my research:
