Savannah is originally from Florida and completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Florida. She is a marine ecologist interested in exploring the trophic ecology of sharks. For her current project she is using DNA from fecal samples to describe and quantify the diet of juvenile sharks in the nursery habitats off of San Cristobal Island. The goals of this project are to implement a new, less invasive technique and to gain a more in-depth knowledge of juvenile shark prey sources to create more effective management plans.
