In 2016, Shannon completed her undergraduate degree at Dalhousie University with first class honours in Earth Sciences and Oceanography, and a certificate in Environmental Geoscience. Shannon’s honours thesis on seafloor scattering and reverberation with Defence Research Development Canada solidified her passion for Acoustical Oceanography and its applications to mapping the seafloor and subsurface. Shannon spent her summer before joining CCOM at Dalhousie University modeling sound propagation from tidal turbines and is excited to get back to studying the seafloor and subsurface.
Shannon is currently pursuing a Master’s in Earth Sciences - Ocean Mapping, and hopes to spend her time at CCOM studying bottom interacting acoustics. During her spare time, Shannon likes to be outdoors and will most likely be found at a completely different elevation, whether it be SCUBA diving 130 ft. below the sea surface or hiking thousands of feet above sea level.
