Hello! I’m Joshua Lai, a UW undergrad studying oceanography with a focus on biology though also dabbling in marine technology and data visualization. As of Spring 2019, I am working on research on patterns of euphausiids in Puget Sound. I’m very interested in the strange creatures that live by hydrothermal vents and surrounding areas as well as symbiosis. I developed a passion for the ocean growing up around Seattle and from reading stories. The ocean is filled with so many stories just waiting to be discovered. Visions’19 will be my first time on a research vessel outside of Puget Sound and I am very excited.
