Life as a Knauss Fellow at the National Science Foundation

Every morning as I travel on the elevator up to the seventh floor of the National Science Foundation (NSF), each floor that I pass houses programs in a different discipline of science. In the same way, my experience as a Knauss Fellow in the Ocean Sciences Division of NSF has taken me through a broad range of ocean research. One day I read about coral reef work and the next I “dive” into the world of deep sea flagellates.
