As a student I have acquired many skills that will aid me in my future endeavors as a scientist.
Studying Geology & Geological Oceanography, Marine Biology, and Underwater Archaeology, I am a firm believer that each field of science is well intertwined and most answers can be found between the lines.
By merging my fields of study, I have been adding essential skills to build a firm path of becoming a deep-sea and polar explorer.
