Using integrative approaches to study the biochemical strategies intertidal organisms use to combat climate change.
Grace was raised in Los Angeles, California where she uncovered her love for writing. Having spent most of her time preparing for a career in journalism, a volunteer opportunity at the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific changed her world completely. She went on to earn a degree in marine biology where she worked with several crustaceans, including mantis shrimps! During her master's, she discovered her love for biochemistry and is now happily working on a project that bridges marine biology and biochemistry for her PhD. When not writing or conducting research, Grace likes to spend quality time in the great outdoors with her fiance and 2 dogs, a border collie and a german shepherd mix!
