"I am extremely interested in ocean exploration due to the fact that my training is in Aquatic Sciences but my experiences are limited to near shore exploration and research. Given this overwhelming opportunity to sail aboard the EV Nautilus will put me at the forefront of ocean exploration with first class cutting edge tools at my disposal and in so doing interacting up close and personal with world class scientists and team members in their respective area of oceanography. I am extremely excited to be a part of this history making."
