Haley Kent

Haley Kent is a rising junior (class of 2023) at Maine Maritime Academy, majoring in Marine Science and Small Vessel Operations with a minor in Environmental Sustainability. She is excited to join the Maine Sea Grant community and engage in educational, research, and professional development.  This summer she is assisting her MMA Ocean Studies professors and other researchers on varied research projects, including a NOAA-funded lobster larvae sampling grant and eDNA curriculum development.  The scholarship would allow her to further her research leading up to an independent senior research project and allow her to volunteer next summer on a Coast Guard cutter or NOAA research vessel.

Haley is a recipient of a 2021 Maine Sea Grant Undergraduate Scholarship in Marine Sciences.
