Kyle Neumann will begin a graduate program in Marine Science at UC Santa Barbara in September. His research project will involve deployment of novel long-term water sampling systems to study nutrient concentrations in coral reef ecosystems with high temporal and spacial resolution. Prior to accepting the position at UCSB, Kyle worked as an applications engineer with the Sexton Corporation, a marine engineering firm in Salem Oregon that designs and builds underwater research tools. At the Sexton Co, Kyle was able to use his experience as a video technician for professional sports teams, and television stations to build underwater imaging systems.
Kyle Neumann graduated from Oregon State University with a B.S. in BioResource Research and a minor in Chemistry. In September he will begin a Masters of Marine Science program at UC Santa Barbara.
