"I have been lucky enough over the years to work with some incredible people in amazing environments such as the Brazilian rain forests, the Aquarius Underwater Habitat, and deep sea hydrothermal environments via the ALVIN submersible. I am excited to go aboard the E/V Nautilus as this research endeavor offers me another opportunity to work with more incredible people and, together, push the frontiers of research."
