1_vAAinYI am a PhD candidate in the Department of Environmental Conservation at University of Massachusetts Amherst and an NSF Offshore Wind Energy IGERT Fellow. I am currently researching elasmobranch (shark, skate, ray) electrosensitivity, specifically how interactions with offshore renewable energy power cables might affect elasmobranchs’ behavior and physiology.

I have previous research experience in fisheries bycatch, coastal and marine spatial planning, and coral reef ecosystems.

You can find me on twitter talking about sharks and marine conservation @kamcclellan or offshore wind energy @IGERTwind
