I am excited to finally be able to announce that I will be joining the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Lafayette, LA as a Science Policy Fellow through the National Academy of Sciences Gulf Research Program! In this position, I will be assisting in coastal restoration efforts in Louisiana and throughout the Gulf of Mexico. I’m super excited to start this new journey and career! I really like this little write up that FIU did about me receiving the fellowship, and am excited that my colleague, Dr. Shelby Servais, also received this same Fellowship!
