Gammon graduated from the University of Miami in the Spring of 2019 with a BS in Marine Science and Biology. His research career started with the Shark Research and Conservation Program under the supervision of Dr. Neil Hammerschlag. Through the lab he was able to participate shark tagging research expeditions and dive to maintain the acoustic receiver arrays in Miami and the Bahamas. He also got the opportunity to work in Dr. Diego Lirman's Benthic Ecology and Coral Restoration Lab as well as the citizen science based, coral restoration program Rescue a Reef. His primary research project with the lab was investigating the most effective outplanting methods for microfragmented massive corals. He was able to present his finding at the Reef Futures 2018 conference in the Florida Keys. In addition to his research experience, Gammon was also able to study abroad in the Galapagos Islands for three months.
Gammon joined the Ichthyology Lab in the Fall of 2019. His research interests include investigating seasonal variation of surf zone fish populations and the impact of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) on these species. When not in the field, he enjoys taking pictures (both above and underwater), scuba diving, and hiking.
