Dannielle began work in the Marine Genomics Lab at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in September of 2014.  Currently, Dannielle manages the lab and specializes in developing genomic libraries for marine teleosts and elasmobranchs.  This research contributes to our understanding of genetic distinction among populations as well as phylogeny.  


Dannielle received a B.S. in Marine Biology from the University of West Florida and then worked as a marine biologist contractor for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Gulf Ecology Division in Gulf Breeze, FL; there, she served on Ecotoxicology (2006-2007) and Proteomics (2007-2008) Tasks. Dannielle received a M.S. in Oceanography and Coastal Sciences from Louisiana State University in 2012.  She worked as a Research Associate at LSU, specializing in histological processing of fish tissues and examination of reproductive biology parameters for heterochronal, multiple-spawning marine fish, to provide fishery managers with up-to-date information on stock vital rates and population dynamics.
