Cruise Experience: Participated in the June 2008 BATS 236 oceanographic cruise out of Bermuda. Assisted Dr. Ken Buessler's Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution group (Andrew McDonnell and Stephanie Owens) with carbon particle flux measurements (NBST, PITS, in situ pumps) and with deploying the video plankton recorder.
In Dec 2008 I participated in the Earth Science Women’s Network (ESWN) Career Workshop at the American Geophysical Union meeting, San Francisco. The ESWN network promotes career development, provides informal mentoring and support, and facilitates professional collaborations among women in Earth Sciences.

Participated in the CarboOceans summer school "Combining data and models: statistical analysis and data assimilation in biogeochemical oceanography", at the Leibnitz Institute of Marine Sciences, Kiel University, Kiel, Germany, August 7th-14th, 2007.
Session Co-convener (with Mick Follows and Arnold Gordon) at the Ocean Sciences Meeting in Hawaii in 2006. Our session, "High Latitude Dynamics and Biogeochemistry" was successful at bringing together a good number of physical oceanographers and biogeochemists. Our three oral sessions were followed by a poster session.
