Andrea Gomez, CREST masters students

Andrea Gomez, CREST Masters student wins 2015 GRTSP Scholarship, GRTSP scholars have a unique opportunity to become engaged in NOAA mission research activities collaborating with NOAA scientists and managers at a NOAA facility when selected. Scholars’ graduate education will be enhanced with real world experiential training that would contribute to an innovation with 21st century workplace competencies.  Andrea will spend a 3-month summer internship with Coral Reef Watch

Also winning this year's award is Carlos Carrizo. He’s passion for marine life and ecosystems started when he was 10 years old. He has always had a strong interest in biology and oceanography; especially the study of marine organisms and wildlife. This year, Carlos is one of three graduate students in the most recent NOAA EPP/MSI Graduate Research and Training Scholarship Program class. Carlos received his Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering in 2012 from The City College of New York (CUNY). He has been part of numerous ocean and coastal campaigns sponsored by NOAA CREST. In spring 2013, he began working toward his Ph.D. at CCNY, under the supervision of Dr. Alex Gilerson in the Optical Remote Sensing Lab. His dissertation entitled “Polarization effects at the top of atmosphere over ocean and coastal waters and their impact on satellite remote sensing considerations” is geared towards improving satellite imagery by assessing and correcting for undesired polarization sensitivity on TOA (Top of Atmosphere) satellite sensors. This research and training opportunity will be performed under the mentorship of Dr. Menghua Wang and Mr. Michael Ondrusek of the NOAA Center for Satellite Applications and Research.

Congratulations to Andrea Gomez and Carlos Carrizo.
