Alumni Spotlight

Oceanography M.S. '21
Sarah is currently a Staff Scientist/Chemist at NewFields specializing in sediment management and marine services and working to reduce impacts of contaminants in marine environments. She feels her UNH experience at sea for two weeks post graduation aboard the R/V Kilo Moana helped land her career.
Environmental Sciences, Ocean Mapping M.S. '18
Cassie is currently a marine geologist leading a small team of mappers at the University of Texas in Austin. She loves having the time and space to deep dive into a project and work through all the geophysical analyses that she has't been able to do in previous positions. 
Zoology M.S. '14
Helen studied the environmental influences on horseshoe crabs, did a fellowship in Washington DC working on marine policy issues at the federal level, worked in NYC for four years on coastal resilience issues, and is currently a graduate student at Northeastern working towards her Ph.D.
Civil and Environmental Engineering Ph.D. '20
Eunsang is a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) and University of Maryland, College Park. He is currently working on developing model simulations to assess the benefits of a future satellite mission concept.
Physics Ph.D. '15
Ian is currently a Senior Professional Staff Member at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory working on experimental space physics research, including magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling, energetic particle dynamics, and particle flight instrumentation and mission design. 
Biogeochemical Oceanography M.S. '22
Currently Jessica is working on a NASA project to enhance the way we communicate science. The project seeks to address land use/land change model simulations to predict future urban development scenarios and identify emerging risks for keystone species’ habitat in New England coastal regions.
Earth Sciences, Ocean Mapping M.S. '22
Erin is currently an independent contractor doing ocean mapping and GIS services. Most of her work is at sea, actively doing seafloor mapping, (i.e.; data acquisition and processing). She contracts to several different organizations, including the Exploration Vessel (E/V) Nautilus. 
Ocean Mapping GEBCO '14
Tomer is currently the head of mapping for SubMerge, a small company in the field of underwater technology and exploration specializing in superyacht and submersible expeditions in remote locations. He's also a director for the ocean mapping non-profit he helped start called Map the Gaps. 
Earth System Sciences M.S. '16
Currently James is the Laboratory Manager for the Water Science and Engineering Laboratory at UW-Madison managing facility maintenance, renovation, lab spaces, research operations, safety and operations, instrumentation, and training in the Core for Advanced Water Analysis.
Oceanography Ph.D. '20
Melissa is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa working on a high-frequency autonomous dual sensor to measure seawater total alkalinity and pH to evaluate metabolic processes in Hawaiian coral reef areas from in situ time series and process study data. 
Electrical Engineering / Physics B.S. '70, M.A.T. '71
Thom is currently a project scientist emeritus at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and is doing some consulting and writing on space plasmas and magnetism from his home in Annapolis. His consulting is done as the sole proprietor of 3rd Rock Research.
Oceanography M.S. '20
John got his MS from UNH and is currently a Marine Ecotoxicology PhD student at the department of ecology, environment and plant sciences at Stockholm University. His research is on how cyanobacteria blooms in the Baltic Sea affect the growth of fish and their accumulation of toxins and pollutants.
