How did you get involved in the Nautilus Exploration program? 

Our team has deployed mesobot from Nautilus during a few technology challenge expeditions, and I’ve helped prepare and supported from shore. Then in 2022 I was able to join onboard as part of the expedition team. It was challenging and fun to coordinate between the different robots and the ship, and we got a lot done.

What are your degrees and certifications? 

Bachelor of Science (2006) and Master of Science (2008) in Ocean Engineering from MIT; Doctor of Philosophy (2012) in Applied Ocean Science and Engineering from the MIT/WHOI Joint Program

What are your hobbies? 

Trail running with my dog; riding and tinkering with bikes; SCUBA and freediving.
