What am I up to this semester?
This semester (Spring 2020), I'll be studying abroad with SEA Semester as a part of class S-290 with the Global Ocean program headed to New Zealand. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, SEA is a really neat program where we'll spend the first 6 weeks of the semester (Jan 2 thru Feb 7th) on shore in Woods Hole, MA learning about New Zealand history, the chemistry and biology of the world's oceans, and about current conservation efforts to protect ocean areas. During the next 6 weeks (Feb 14th - March 23rd), we'll be sailing on a tall ship research vessel visiting various ports in New Zealand and collecting ocean data for our research projects.
