About Ana

I am a graduate student in the Castillo Lab at UNC, where I study the microbial ecology of the temperate coral Oculina arbuscula, a key member of hard bottom habitats in North Carolina. Specifically, I am interested in discerning the role of microbial symbionts in the adaptive response of temperate corals to environmental stressors.

I completed my undergraduate education at the College of the Holy Cross, where I received a degree in biology and, my other passion, music.

Upon completion of my MS, I hope to apply my skills in the natural sciences to the fields of coastal management and policy, working to support more resilient coastal ecosystems and communities.
