Hi everyone, I'm Shelby and I am currently a Bachelors student at the University of Regina in Canada
WHAT IS YOUR AREA OF RESEARCH?
My area of research prior to this summer was primarily structural geology. In June, I started marine research for the University of Ottawa focusing on the Eissen spreading centre and other areas were subduction intersects back arc spreading with a large focus on bonninite production.
WHAT IS A FIRST TIME FOR YOU ON THIS EXPEDITION?
This is my first time on an at-sea expedition!
WHAT ARE YOU EXCITED TO LEARN/DISCOVER?
I am most excited to experience life at sea, to learn how field work is conducted in the ocean and I also hope to see some wildlife.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT MARINE SCIENCE?
I love geosciences because it’s such a young field; I love that there is so much unknown and that I get to play a role in answering those questions.
