In 2017, I received a National Science Foundation REU grant to conduct research at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences under the mentorship of Dr. Eric Hochberg and Dr. Yvonne Sawall. I studied the relationship between the light use efficiency and reflectance of coral reef autotrophs, working towards a mathematical correlation that would allow scientists to study reef productivity by means of remote sensing. This research is part of a larger NASA mission, the Coral Reef Airborne Laboratory (CoRAL), to assess the global status of reefs.
