What is your major? Geology

How did you become interested in this major or field? I have experience in Biology, especially malacology. The study of mollusks is incorporated in both biology and geology.

Where do you see yourself five years from now? I would like to be in graduate school, or maybe even done with it.

What part of the research on this trip has interested you the most? The part that interested me the most was the beam trawling. The beam trawl brought in the most different mollusk species, which is my research.

What part of the research has interested you the least? I wasn't very interested in plankton sampling, it was okay. I was not at all interested in collecting chlorophyll samples. I like being able to see what I am sampling.

Did you get sea sick on this trip? No
