McKenna Dawson (Leg 3)

Hello! My name is McKenna Dawson, and I am a rising senior at UW studying industrial engineering with a focus in data science. I learned about the cabled array system from the introduction to Oceanography class last year and was immediately intrigued by this research cruise. Specifically the research opportunities available because of the system’s 24/7 collection of so many different types of data. I am interested in data visualization and community outreach, interpreting data and making it accessible to a larger audience. This will be my first VISIONS cruise and I am beyond excited to learn more about ocean sciences alongside both my peers and professionals.
