Her research project studied the microbiological community present in dolphins and was chosen from 10 others and tied for first place with Darius Sanford, who worked at Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary and who will also attend the ASLO

Zayas worked in the lab of Skidaway Institute professor Marc Frischer and was mentored by Savannah State University graduate student Kevin McKenzie.
