Hi! My name is Melanie Smith, currently a second year student at Stony Brook University. I am a declared major in Environmental Studies. I am eager to continue researching new, unanswered questions regarding the marine world, and completed a year-long baseline study monitoring the health of the Harlem River, of which I was Project Manager. Recently, my project was featured in the documentary Take Back the Harbor, presented by the Discovery Channel!
