I’m a Research Associate at the Monterey Bay Aquarium (MBA) and Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI). I’ve been working with MBARI for 15 years – starting as an intern in 2003 – and my current role is liaison between these sister institutions and chief scientist for MBA research & collecting expeditions on the R/V Rachel Carson. We use the ROV Ventana to observe and collect cephalopods and other invertebrates for display in the Tentacles: The Astounding Lives of Squid, Octopuses, and Cuttlefishes exhibit.
