Christine Bassett was announced as a NOAA Sea Grant Knauss fellowship finalist. She will travel to Washington DC in October to be paired with a participating agency. Once paired, she will work with that agency for one year, starting in early 2020, applying science toward public policy.  These are highly competitive fellowships, with only a few being selected from each of the 34 sea grant states.
