Sydney Adams is a senior at Maine Maritime Academy finishing her B.S. in Marine Science with a minor in Small Vessel Operations. Last summer, she was an environmental technician intern in a salmon processing plant in Cordova Alaska. At school, she is part of the volleyball team and waterfront student staff. She is currently a deckhand aboard the R/V Spirit of the Sound and finishing her senior research thesis on the distribution of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons around the Bangor Maine region.  

While not graduating until 2020, Sydney looks to pursue a career or higher education in environmental chemistry or protection. She looks forward to learning with the science and deck team aboard the R/V Falkor on their transit to Hawaii.
