Full CV


Adele received a Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Biology from Auburn University in 2005. After graduation, she was employed as an aquatic husbandry specialist in public science museums for five years. In January 2012, Adele joined the laboratory of Stephen Watts and began working on her M.S degree in Biological Sciences at UAB. Her research interests focus on development of the zebrafish Danio rerio as a model for human nutrition, particularly as it relates to obesity. Her research projects focus on the effects of dietary macronutrients on energy allocation and body composition in zebrafish using obesity as a marker.
