Personal Statement
I am currently a PhD Candidate in Fish and Wildlife Biology and Management at SUNY-ESF. I work in the Whipps Fish and Wildlife Disease Laboratory in the Department of Environment and Forest Biology at ESF. My research focuses on controlling an infectious disease in laboratory fish. My research is on mycobacteriosis, a bacterial disease caused by several species and strains of Mycobacterium. Mycobacteriosis is the second most common infectious disease in laboratory zebrafish. I am working to improve our understanding the disease ecology of mycobacteriosis in the zebrafish host. I hope to use these insights to implement successful disease management measures and prevent outbreaks of this disease in laboratory fish.

Graduate Research Topic
Control of Infectious Diseases in Zebrafish (Danio rerio)
