Hannah Gunderman (Leg 1)

Hello! My name is Hannah and I am from Encinitas, California. Growing up near the ocean and many major beaches, I have always been amazed and inspired by the vastness, beauty, and power of the ocean. I think it’s had a huge part in developing a natural curiosity for the order of the world and scientific discovery. As such, I am now a Senior studying Bioengineering (B.S.) at the University of Washington. I believe that this experience will be incredibly enlightening about how deep sea biodiversity, ecosystems, and technology can inform engineering. In Visions ’22, I hope to be a part of creating a more sustainable future by being unafraid to explore the utterly unknown, making some new friends and colleagues along the way.
