Congratulations to Hailey Conrad 2020’s Outstanding Senior in Marine Science

Hailey Conrad is a member of the Rutgers Honors College. She began doing research her freshman year with DMCS by volunteering in the OOI Hydrothermal Vent Lab where she reconstructed time lapse video of hydrothermal vents and analyzed periodic trends in vent community characteristics. She continued doing research with DMCS by volunteering with the Schofield lab in Antarctica to monitor phytoplankton populations and working as an Aresty Research Assistant in the Pinsky lab looking at the habitat constraints continental shelf species will face as they undergo climate-induced range shifts, where she is working towards publishing her research. Hailey is also completing a George H. Cook honors thesis, and will be continuing on to a graduate program at Virginia Tech after graduation.
