Rachele SpezzanoGraduate Student
- Research Focus:
- Microbial and zooplanktonic communities of subtropical oceans and their response to a changing climate
- Hinds Lab 381
I studied Biology at the University of Parma (Italy) and Global Change Ecology at the University of Bologna (Italy).I've always been interested in marine life, probably because I grew up near the sea which made me want to become a professional scuba diver. I am happy I found a way to put together my love for the ocean with all my research interests, including data science and machine learning.
