I have just completed my junior year as an Oceanography major at the University of Washington. My three areas of academic interest are in ocean technology, physical oceanography, and atmospheric sciences. I currently work at the UW Argo Float Lab, and I hope to someday study ocean engineering in a graduate program so that I can design similar ocean sensor platforms. This will be my first Visions cruise and I am excited to gain more experience of working with marine instruments and educational outreach.
