Masters Student in Earth Systems
Student Employee, Earth Systems Program
This year, Hailey is a senior on the Oceans and Climate track of Earth Systems. She was born and raised in New England but relocated to Dallas at age 10, and she's missed the coast ever since. Hailey loves all things related to the sea, but she is particularly interested in the cultural ties that have historically drawn communities to the ocean and the education necessary to facilitate global cooperation. She is entering her senior year following a quarter spent at the Hopkins Marine Station in Monterey and a summer filled with research on abalone physiology and their physical distribution. During her senior year, Hailey will be pursuing an honors thesis focusing on abalone and their possible responses to projected oceanic change. She spends most of her free time baking, listening to podcasts, and trying to convince everyone to go to trivia night with her.
