Help us make oceanbites better!
Hello Reader! We here at oceanbites want to know what you’re interested in reading about. Is there anything ocean-related you’ve been wanting to learn more about that we haven’t covered? Any areas of study we’ve overlooked? What about new features we could add to the site to make it more entertaining and educational? Whether you’re new to the site or a regular reader, we’d love to hear from you — let us know what you think by filling out the survey below (if you don’t see the survey, try reloading the page, it make take a few moments to load)!
I am the founder of oceanbites, and a postdoctoral fellow in the Higgins Lab at Colorado School of Mines, where I study poly- and perfluorinated chemicals. I got my Ph.D. in the Lohmann Lab at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography, where my research focused on how toxic chemicals like flame retardants end up in our lakes and oceans. Before graduate school, I earned a B.Sc. in chemistry from MIT and spent two years in environmental consulting. When I’m not doing chemistry in the lab, I’m doing chemistry at home (brewing beer).
