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
meeting.

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

Zayas is a rising junior and biology major at the Universidad Metropolitana in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

She says she plans to complete her bachelor’s degree in Puerto Rico and then
attend graduate school.
