New College Public Archaeology Lab Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Sarasota, FL
“I loved working with my long time adviser, Dr. Uzi Baram. He allowed me much independence on the summer project, and it required a lot of communicating and collaborating among other local organizations and individuals, which was a very fun experience. I learned a lot through compiling the e-book that was the main project we were working on. I now have a solid foundation of knowledge about the local archaeology and heritage of the Sarasota/Manatee county areas. ”

Research Assistant

May 2019 - August 2019 University of South Florida, FL
“Finding hydroids is difficult, but the lab is a wonderful place to work! We isolated species, ran DNA, and searched through thousands of pages of literature on hydroids of the gulf to complete rudimentary taxonomy. I went from not knowing what a hydroid was to isolating more than a dozen species from the bay!”
