2018 MATE Long-Term Internship
My 6-month internship as a marine technician spans 10 research cruises, 4 research vessels, and 3 oceans. This kind of hands-on job training is the best I could ask for.

US Geological Survey
As an intern for the US Geological Survey Water Quality Research Group, I assist in sample collection and analysis for SPM and chlorophyll-a on monthly research cruises in the San Francisco and San Pablo Bay.
Cal Maritime Department of Marine Science
Chief Science Officer for training cruises
In 2016 I was part of a brand new imitative to combine marine transportation piloting classes with marine science research cruises on campus.
As Chief Science Officer, I trained each student on the various instrumentation and worked with the Captain on weekly cruise itineraries and sampling. As part of the course, I helped co-author a paper, which was presented at the 18th Annual General Assembly of the International Association of Maritime Universities (IAMU) in 2017.
