Coastal Disturbance Research (May 2013)
This summer I will be involved in an independent field research project focusing on the coastal disturbances of the Cedar Key area through support and mentorship of the Seahorse Key Marine Laboratory. I will spend several days living on the Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge with a group of other Undergraduate Researchers working on their own projects. I am so excited to be part of this opportunity and plan to start a WordPress blog dedicated to my day-to-day life on the island and updates on my research project when it begins.
University of Florida's Humans vs. Zombies Website (Spring 2013)
Humans vs. Zombies (HvZ) is a game of tag played not only at the University of Florida, but around the world. You can visit the official webpage to learn more about the Human vs. Zombies community.
Going into it's twelfth game, the UF HvZ group has expanded to over three hundred an fifty participants and is still growing. In the past coordination of UF HvZ events and missions have occurred primarily through Facebook, but after expanding to Twitter the moderators have realized the need for a stronger online presence and organization of content. I have been brought in to design and run the their official website, which should be online by early April. So keep checking back for updates!
The Tiger Open (2012-2013)
In the early part of 2013, I was involved in the planning and coordination of the Tiger Open, Clemson University’s annual fencing tournament, and the largest tournament in the Southeast for the 2012-2013 season to date, as well as I coordinating travel and lodging for the University of Florida’s Fencing Team, whom attended the tournament. I was integral in the process of securing equipment, hiring refs as well as one of the members of running armory. My position in armory and on Bout Committee involved checking masks, lamés, and doing diagnostic work on reels, floor cords and boxes, while ensuring that the tournament ran as smooth and efficiently as possible.
