I lived and grew up in Beaverton, Oregon but traveled to downtown Portland frequently. I chose to come to OSU for their marine biology program and convenience of being close to home. I’m very excited for the opportunity to do research under Dr. Eli Meyer with bioluminescent anemones. This experience will be fun and critical for gaining experience and relationships within my field. My favorite aspect of OSU is all the opportunities that it offers, such as this research.
