Meet our new summer students
This summer we welcome three undergraduate students in the CERC.OCEAN lab - Teala Chambers, Sara Wong and Adriana Reitano. Here are a short introduction about themselves and their summer projects with CERC.OCEAN:
I am Teala Chambers, a recent BSc graduate in Ocean Sciences with Honours. Completing my undergraduate degree with Honour's thesis has been such a privilege, and I hope to pursue a master's degree in the near future! The ocean connects us all by its influence on the climate and its photosynthetic contribution of oxygen that are necessary to our existence. The way I see it, chemical oceanography links to physical, biological, and geological processes that affect the ocean; hence they reflect the connectedness of the ocean. I am so grateful to be able to pursue my interests in marine chemistry, ocean technology and science communication. Ocean technology is interesting to me because it can help us, as scientists, to better understand and relate to the ocean. I am so excited to learn more about ocean observations using ROVS and AUVs by assisting with data collection and processing in the Bedford Basin.
My name is Adriana Reitano. I am entering the fifth and final year of my undergraduate degree, majoring in ocean sciences with Honours and minoring in chemistry. My chemistry minor has been primarily focusing on organic chemistry as I find it the most interesting! I love all the things about the carbonate system, carbon chemistry, and how they alter by ocean acidification. I love chemical oceanography because it combines my two favourite things – chemistry and the ocean! I feel that chemical oceanography is the best outlet to create an impact in mitigating climate change, which is what I really want to do. During the summer, I will be measuring nitrous oxide (N₂O) concentrations of water samples from Bedford Basin. My summer work will become part of my honours project in the coming academic year (2021/2022).
