She loved (and still does) all kinds of ocean and land critters, having had an assortment of pets as a child, from fish to flying marsupials.

For her Ph.D. degree, she works with Dr. Ann Tarrant, her advisor, and Dr. Anne Cohen. Her mentor for this article was Joshua Howgego of New Scientist magazine.
