Research interests

MSc candidate in biological oceanography at UPRM interested in marine population genomics and the diversity and role of viruses within the coral holobiont. My on-going mesophotic-related projects include: i. Population connectivity of Nassau Grouper breeding aggregations in PR USVI ii. Characterizing the first draft de novo whole genome assembly of Nassau Grouper iii. Generating and describing a de novo transcriptome assembly of Agaricia lamarcki collected from mesophotic depth using novel contamination removal and assembly procedures (Veglia et al. In revision) iv. Bacterial and viral assemblage analysis of Agaricia lamarcki holobiont along shallow-mesophotic depth gradients in La Parguera, Puerto Rico v. Developing.
