My name is Ekai Richards and I have recently graduated from UCSC with a Marine Biology B.S. and Education minor. I am currently working on using collected data from dry skull methods on a variety of Musteloidea to determine evolutionary allometric relationships between different dietary groups and bite force. Additionally I am working on receiving my scientific diving certification to further my capabilities as a researcher. While plans remain uncertain I wish to continue to expand my skills as both a researcher and educator to be able to help teach future marine scientists.
