Trevor Harrison is a first year graduate student at University of Washington in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He works under Dr. Brian Polagye in the Marine Renewable Energy Lab, specifically researching instrumentation development for environmental monitoring and
resource characterization of renewable energy devices. He hails from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, which installed a love of oceans early on, and a position at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution motivated him to return to graduate school with the eventual goal of becoming a research engineer. His side interests include a recently started student faculty group Sandbox: Science, Art, and Engineering Collective, focused on exploring the creative opportunities of cross-disciplinary collaboration. In the remaining scarce moments of free time, he does his best to get outside and be active.
