Assistant Professor | University of North Carolina Asheville
I am fascinated by the ways organisms change through time. Be it evolutionary, developmental, seasonal or daily change. I want to know how this change comes about, and what impact the environment has on organisms as they change, and how changes in organisms in turn impact the environment around them.
I am also passionate about ocean conservation, particularly in areas beyond national jurisdiction.

Kela is a research student at Howard University and is conducting work on the metamorphosis of stinging nettle jellyfish. Kela is interested in the way organisms interact with each other and with their environments, as well as the adaptations they develop for such interactions. She plans to continue studying marine invertebrates in graduate school.
