Ian McQuillen is a 5th year Oceanography and Biology undergraduate. Ian is interested in the biology of cephalopods, crustaceans and ctenophores and in exploring the sea. One of Ian’s priorities in his last year of school is achieving a practical understanding of the process of oceanographic fieldwork. This year, he hopes to continue learning in the ERIS student oceanographic observatory program, employing knowledge gleaned from his time aboard VISIONS 2014.
