As an undergraduate student at Queens College (CUNY), I was one of nine students aboard the R/V Hugh Sharp in June of 2006. The purpose of the cruise was to study western Long Island Sound. I was personally responsible for describing cores, sampling cores, weight and crushing samples, and analyzing sediment samples for concentration of mercury. The purpose was to potentially be able to give advice on remediation. As an undergraduate, I also participated in a research project at the Graduate School of Oceanography (part of the University of Rhode Island). During this project, I characterized the circulation pattern of a coastal lagoon in New England by deploying current tilt meters and analyzing the data.
