Shining Their Light
Data Analytics 2020
REU Fellow, Maryland Sea Grant Research Experience for Undergraduates
My professors supported me and supplied me with the knowledge and critical thinking skills I needed.
At my internship, I learned the basics of physical oceanography and applied that knowledge to the data analysis of the Indian Ocean. I even had the honor of presenting these findings at a symposium at the end of the summer.
Engineering Science 2015
