Oceanography M.S. Candidate at University of Delaware’s School of Marine Science and Policy
I grew up in coastal New Jersey, where I became interested in science, computers, and physics at an early age from watching Mythbusters. After completing an A.S. in computer science from Ocean County College, I decided to pursue a physics degree at Rutgers – New Brunswick and became involved with the Oceanography department through an ocean option in the applied physics program. This led to my participation in the 2017 NSF REU at the University of Delaware, where I developed an interactive web application to compare satellite and AUV data before returning to UD as a graduate SMSP fellow. My research interests include remote sensing validation & application, machine learning techniques, big data handling techniques and finding new applications for existing ocean observatories.
I am also the proud winner of Delaware Environmental Institute’s annual elevator pitch competition, Pitch 90. A huge thank you to everyone involved, it was a fun and enriching experience. A link to the video can be found here.
