Dr Michael is a post-doctoral research associate with the South Carolina Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Program. Her role is to characterize the distribution and abundance of seabirds in the northern Gulf of Mexico and their overlap with oil and gas activities within the US EEZ.

What did you like best about the program?

I enjoyed the international and collaborative environment; students and researchers from different countries leveraging expertise and carving paths forward.

You aren't just IN the room... even when I was a new Ph.D. student, I was always welcomed as a PART of the room.

The QMS program is also very unique in its extremely deep knowledge across a breadth of topics/regions.

How has it helped you in your current career?

The breadth of the skillset I developed during my Ph.D. helps me stand out from my peers.

I can demonstrate my experience collaborating across different institutions and publications resulting from those collaborations.
