It was a very happy and emotional day for me yesterday- I graduated with my PhD from the Aquatic Animal Health program, College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Florida! Eight years of sample collection and analysis, and 5 years of PhD program are finished! I'm incredibly grateful to all the many collaborators both in Africa and the USA who worked so closely with me to make this possible. My greatest hope is that the results will help the conservation of the African manatee, and I look forward to many more years of work with this unique and fascinating species.
