I am a Master’s student in the Marine Science and Technology Program at UMass Boston and an Aquarist for the New England Aquarium.  I became fascinated with the occurrence of Gulf Stream Orphans while diving in the Northeast and hope that this website will help improve our understanding of the phenomenon, teach us more about how climate change is affecting our oceans, and promote environmental conservation efforts at regional marine research institutions.
