Project Description

Dr. Robinson earned a B.S. in biology from Centenary College of Louisiana, a M.S. in biology from Texas A&M UniversitynCorpus Christi, and a Ph.D. in oceanography and coastal sciences from Louisiana State University. Prior to graduate school, she interned at Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) working on a project involving hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico. Her dissertation research focused on the effects of theDeepwater Horizonoil spill on mollusk and crustacean populations, behaviors, and predator-prey interactions. She was recognized as a Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) Scholar for her contributions to understanding the effects of the oil spill. Her general research interests include coastal ecology, benthic ecology, and aquatic toxicology. In her free time, she communicates science through art using color pencil and ink media. Her passion in art and science aided the development of LUMCONis Coastal Art and Science Camp for high school students.
