Hi all, I’m Romy Carpenter a born-and-raised Mainer, nature-lover and rising junior in college. For now I’ve settled in the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology department at Yale where I hope to figure out how I want to explore, learn about, and maybe conserve the natural world.

This summer, I’ll be helping to study the effects of environmental stress on marine invertebrates in Long Island Sound through an internship coordinated by the Peabody Museum of Natural History. I’ll post updates here as we corral the small creatures into vials and monitor them.
