    Bridget studied changes in deep scattering layers under varying oxygen concentration in Puget Sound for a summer internship. She is currently studying at the Everett Community College.

  • Zack Oyafuso

    Zack Oyafuso

    Zack did his undergraduate capstone research project on changes in zooplankton communities in regions of Puget Sound that are affected by seasonal hypoxia. Zack is currently pursuing a graduate degree at the University of Hawaii.

  • Tricia Tibodeaux

    Tricia Tibodeaux

    Tricia was a NOAA Hollings Scholar who spent a summer conducting experiments on the effects of ocean acidification on copepods and pteropods. She is currently finishing her B.S. at Bowdoin and is applying for graduate schools.
