Project Title
The Relationship Between Functional Diversity and Secondary Production Affected by Freshwater Inflow
Expected Graduation Year
2022
Education
B.S. Environmental Science, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi (2021)

Karin is a Graduate Research Assistant in Dr. Paul Montagna's Hydroecology lab. She received her B.S in Environmental Science: Marine and Coastal Resources and a Minor in Biology at Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi in May 2021. During her last semester of undergraduate studies, she was accepted into the Environmental Science Fast Track Program which allowed her to take graduate courses that counted towards her undergraduate and graduate degree, thus enabling her to obtain a master's degree at an accelerated pace. Karin's research will focus on the effect freshwater inflow has on functional diversity and secondary production in estuaries. She has received the Crutchfield Fellowship to support her research.

Karin grew up on the Texas Coast and spent most of her childhood on the beaches of South Padre 
Island. Her love for the ocean inspired her to pursue an education in environmental science and 
conservation. In the future, she hopes to continue researching marine and coastal ecosystems and earn her PhD.
