Project Description

Ms. Culver graduated from Baylor University with a B.S. in environmental science and earned an M.S. in coastal and marine system science from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. Her thesis research explored the relationship between beach geomorphology characteristics and Kempis ridley nesting habits along Padre Island, Texas. While in graduate school, Ms. Culver served as Project Manager for the Harte of the Gulf Film Competition, an outreach event with the mission of engaging the Gulf of Mexico community through education and film. Prior to her fellowship, she was a coastal geoscientist in the Coastal and Marine Geospatial Lab of the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies, where she participated in a project relating to coastal resiliency.
