Interviews

1. Who are you, where are you from, what is your role in the project?
SOEST Engineering Support Facility Electronic Technician. Research and order electronic parts for the project.

2. What brought you to your current career position (how'd you come to be in marine sciences-related field?)?
Taught electronics and computer networking for over 15 years and was looking to do something a little different. Met the senior electrical engineer and he mentioned that there was a vacant position in SOEST Engineering support facility. Assisting in the design and fabrication of ocean sensor equipment fit the bill of something different, and I am enjoying the challenges that I face every day.
