Welcome!

My name is Madison Armstrong and I am a first year PhD student in the Population Biology Graduate group at University of California, Davis. I am working with my advisor Dr. Rachael Bay to develop a research project focused around marine invertebrate adaptation to environmental change, specifically to human-induced change. I am also tying my research to policy via my participation in the Sustainable Oceans NRT program.
