MY ROLE AT MBARI
I am a summer intern working with Dr. Ken Smith and Linda Kuhnz on a deep sea ecology at "Station M". This site is 4,100 meters deep off the coast of central California. Station M has provided time series data since 1989. I am currently analyzing holothuroid distributions and biomass changes over time using this time series data.
I have recently graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Marine Science from California State University, Monterey Bay. While at CSU Monterey Bay, I collected and analyzed rov (remotely operated vehicle) data to compare population and distribution of organisms in trawled and untrawled areas. I look forward to going to graduate school.
