Adham Jaleel is an undergraduate student studying environmental geophysics. He is currently studying at the University of Hawaii whilst on his year abroad program. After the spring 2014 semester he will return home to the UK to complete his degree at the University of East Anglia. He will be using the gravity data from the cruise for his thesis.

He has made the most of his time abroad making many inter-island trips, completing hikes, exploring the island, swimming with sharks, skydiving, and of course, surfing. Now he can finally add taking part in a research cruise to that list thanks to the team on theFalkor.
