Marine Lebrec, '16

BS, Oceanography


I am finishing up my junior year majoring in oceanography and minoring in marine biology. I have experience researching deep sea hydrothermal vent sites and am extremely interested in how organisms survive in such extreme habitats, similarly to the Arctic. I am passionate about climate change and have studied micro plastics in New Zealand waters. I am interested in finding ways to incorporate scientific data into making changes in Arctic policy as anthropogenic forces are changing this region of the world drastically. I would love to eventually do research in the Arctic to better understand this valuable part of the world.
