A New School Year Brings A New Academic Family

Over this past school year, the sediment dynamics lab was filled with chatter from undergraduate research assistants, the thunk thunk thunk of the rotap, and hum of vacuum pumps. As the summer quarter rolled in, we had to say goodbye to those who graduated, and the lab has become unusually quiet. But, it won’t stay quiet for long. Our collaborator and friend from Brazil, Nils Asp, is joining us in Seattle soon for a year-long sabbatical and he is bringing his family! Here, we give a big thanks and shout out to our recent grads and welcome our new visitors.

Recent Graduates: Julia Wallace, Caity Fisher, Kaelyn Trapp, and Khadijah Homolka

The long hours and late nights y’all work in the lab can’t be appreciated enough! You all brought excitement and motivation to our group, and we wish you all the best in your future sea fairing adventures!

New Visitors: Nils, Luciane, and their three sons

We are so happy to have you with us! When we visit your family in Bragança, you welcome us with open arms and delicious homemade meals. Now we get to return the favor and show you all that Seattle has to offer.
