Alumni Success

As a student, I was involved in the mapping of the Robert J. Walker through the New Jersey Benthic Studies class taught by Dr. Peter Straub (now Dean Peter Straub). I was one of three students on the project, and was able to get amazing experience working with ROVV and multibeam. The experience I have in that class made me fall in love with research. I even got the opportunity to present the research for NOAA and the Explorers club.
