OOMG Ph.D. student Laura McGee has won the first Vembu Subramanian Ocean Scholars award from the Southeast Coastal Ocean Observing Regional Association (SECOORA). Laura will use the financial award to present her research as scientific meetings, network with other scientists, and disseminate her research results. She develops and uses cutting-edge data analysis techniques to investigate the role of hurricanes in air-sea CO2 flux.
Vebmu Subramanian was the Deputy Director of RCOOS and DMAC operations for SECOORA. Although his time was tragically cut short, his friends and colleagues honor his memory and legacy by continuing his support for students and the next generation of ocean experts.
