Her research topic includes species distribution models of dwarf seahorses and other pipefishes in the Texas coast along the Gulf of Mexico. The goal of her research is to assess the distribution and habitats and identify threats and factors that drive these distributions. Her team’s objective is to produce predictive models that will improve understanding of seahorse habitat and contribute to the preservation of these species.
