I am a senior in Earth Sciences at Oregon State University. Through a rad internship offered by OSU and OOI, I have been given the opportunity to hop aboard the Thompson this summer and to experience science in action. Having spent the last few weeks aiding in the construction of the BEPs, I am particularly excited to witness their deployment. During my free time you can find me cleaning cables, greasing bolts, or driving the forklift around the parking lot.
