Dannielle is a marine fisheries biologist at the Center for Sportfish Science and Conservation and program coordinator for estimating the absolute abundance of red snapper in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology from the University of West Florida in 2006 then worked as a marine biologist (student services contractor) for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Gulf Ecology Division, where she served on Ecotoxicology (2006-2007) and Proteomics (2007-2008) Tasks. Dannielle earned a master’s degree in Oceanography and Coastal Sciences from Louisiana State University (2012), where she studied the reproductive biology of red snapper. She then worked as a Research Associate at LSU, specializing in histological processing of fish tissues and examination of reproductive biology parameters for heterochronal, multiple-spawning marine fish, to provide fishery managers with up-to-date information on stock vital rates and population dynamics. Dannielle managed the Marine Genomics Laboratory at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi from 2014-2017, where she developed genomic libraries for teleosts, as well as one species of marine crustacean, to better understand genetic distinction among populations.
