I’m a Masters student with Stacy Kim at Moss Landing Marine Labs studying the impacts of iceberg scour on seafloor communities. Free floating icebergs often come in contact with the seafloor, clearing large patches and opening up space for colonization. This research will be conducted in shallow sites accessible by scuba and deeper sites that require the use of our ROV. I am curious how increased disturbance of the seafloor, brought about by a warming climate and increase of free-floating ice, will alter these communities in years to come. When I’m not working at the lab I’m usually outside doing something active, in and out of the water.
