Hi, I’m Melissa!
I am a marine technician at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. I write about living and working on research ships.
I recently had a column published by Nature, check it out here!
For more of my writing, check out the blog for SIO’s newest research ship, the R/V Sally Ride. Read more from me here.
I travel a lot and like to share my experiences.
My husband is a brewer, and sometimes I write about beer.
I have a lot of opinions about movies and TV, usually in the science fiction genre.
I write short stories and film scripts for fun too, and am working on a novel.
Thanks for checking out my writing!
