Terence Leach

I am currently a freshman attending the University of Washington- Seattle, intending to major in Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Biology with a minor in Marine Biology. I started working in the Rocap Lab with graduate student Michael Carlson over the summer while taking part in a program called GenOM ALVA, and have been conducting undergraduate research for the last two quarters. My current project is sequencing genes from Pseudo-nitzschia species and trying to reconstruct their evolutionary relationships. My long term interests include going to graduate school to further my studies in marine biology and to eventually become a marine biologist.
