Hello! I am currently an undergraduate at The University of Maine working to earn a dual degree in Marine Science with a focus on marine biology and oceanography, and Journalism. This past summer I had the opportunity to travel to Fiji doing volunteer research for the University of the South Pacific where I earned SCUBA certification and gained experience in underwater surveying. I am excited to continue working in the field as I spend my junior fall semester at the Darling Marine Center. I am also hoping to gain new techniques in the lab here as I join an ongoing project at Wahle Lab to monitor American Lobster larvae settlement along the northeast coast of North America.
