Lynette earned a BFA in art from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2010. Following graduation, stints as a deckhand aboard sailing vessels in the Pacific, Atlantic, and North Sea solidified her interest in ocean exploration.
Now pursuing dual MS degrees in computer science and ocean mapping, Lynette plans to combine these fields to develop solutions to problems in seafloor mapping. She is especially looking forward to spending time conducting fieldwork at sea.
In her free time, Lynette enjoys traveling, sailing, weightlifting, and log rolling; she is currently a member of the UNH Woodsmen team.
