I really appreciated the personal attention I received from my professors. Dr. Charles Chester, in particular, introduced me to many amazing things in the marine environment, and was very passionate about his work and field of study. His courses were some of my most enjoyable and thought-provoking.

My internship with the National Science Foundation at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) was amazing. We took samples in the open ocean where the water was 5,000 meters deep, with the goal of determining the amount of UV and visible light absorbed by dissolved particles in the water that are produced by bacteria.
