March 19, 2015

After earning her Ph.D. in Biological Oceanography through a joint program between MIT and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, Amalia Aruda Almada, Thoreau Scholar/Georgetown University Class of 2009, recently began a Knauss fellowship with the National Ocean Service, Policy & Constituent Affairs Division at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Amalia will help debrief legislators and develop policies for responsible stewardship of our ocean resources or, as she puts it, “connect marine science with real world problems and solutions.” Congratulations to Amalia on this notable achievement.
