What is your major? Marine Biology and Molecular Biology

How did you become interested in this major or field? Watching the Discovery Channel. I was always fascinated by the organisms that live in the ocean. I also want to visit and do research in exotic places.

Where do you see yourself five years from now? I hope to have a masters degree either in marine biology or molecular biology. I would like to be doing work that blends these two sciences together.

What part of the research on this trip has interested you the most? The benthic trawls were definitely the most exciting. There was a large diversity of species on each trawl. You never knew what to expect each time the net was brought on board.

What part of the research has interested you the least? The zooplankton. They all look the same out here. They might be more interesting when we look at them under the microscope.

Did you get sea sick on this trip? Oh yeah!! About 15 times.
