Molecular Laboratory Technician
Shreya grew up on the San Francisco Peninsula, where her interest in wildlife and marine biology was sparked at a young age by frequent camping and hiking trips, beach days, and visits to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Her interest was solidified during her field quarter abroad in Costa Rica and she graduated with a BS in Environmental Systems: Ecology, Behavior, and Evolution from UC San Diego in 2016. She recently completed a MS in marine biology at Scripps Institution of Oceanography where she collaborated with the Marine Turtle Genetics Program at NOAA Southwest Fisheries to study the implications of multiple paternity on morphological variation in leatherback sea turtle hatchlings at Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge in St. Croix, USVI. She is excited to learn more about using molecular techniques to understand anthropogenic influences on aquatic organisms and ecosystems.
