About Me

Fisheries background and experience

Greetings! My name is Caroline and I’m a fisheries biologist, currently in graduate school at the University of Wyoming seeking a masters degree. I’m studying in the lab of Dr. Willie Fetzer, working on an applied fisheries management project at New Fork Lakes, Wyoming. My project is now in the data analysis and writing phase, and I’m hoping to defend in March 2023!

After graduating, I’m seeking a career involving research and science communication. I am passionate about working to better understand and protect our natural resources, but also about sharing that work with others!

I grew up in Massachusetts and attended Stonehill College, where I graduated with a B.S. in Biology and Environmental Studies in 2017. Check out some of the highlights below!

I studied abroad for a semester in Queensland, Australia, in a field studies program with emphasis on rainforest and coral reef ecology.
I completed an undergrad thesis studying growth and survival of larval Alewife in habitats of variable quality through the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

I volunteered on a NOAA research cruise to collect samples at Stellwagen Bank.

The week after I graduated college, I started a seasonal job with the Marine Division of New Hampshire Fish and Game, conducting creel surveys and surveying tidal rivers around coastal NH. While living in Durham, I took full advantage of my proximity to great recreational activities on the coast!

From 2018-2020 I worked as a fisheries technician contractor for the USGS on Lake Superior. In the field season I worked on the Research Vessel Kiyi, and in the off-season I performed data analyses and wrote reports and papers to summarize our findings.
