MC Hannon is a third-year Ph.D. candidate in Marine Biology at Texas A&M University at Galveston. She graduated from Humboldt State University with a double major in Marine Biology and Zoology, and is currently a member of the Schulze lab.
Her dissertation research focuses on the reproductive habits of a local species of polychaetes, the common clam worm. She is taking a four-pronged approach to get a comprehensive picture of what is occurring by using ecological, genetic, histological, and biomechanic tools.
In her spare time, MC is very active and enjoys playing Ultimate Frisbee and going to a Crossfit gym(when conditions are safe). Fun fact: MC is an ordained minister in the state of Texas and officiated her first wedding earlier this year!
