Anna Abelman

Bio
Anna Abelman comes from the University of Delaware where she graduated in 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Marine Science and a minor in Public Policy. Anna’s passion is conserving the ocean’s ecosystems, fueled by a love for SCUBA diving and a study abroad experience in New Zealand, where she observed and studied various coastal environments. During her undergraduate career, Anna completed the summer program OCEANUS Research Experience for Undergraduates at Texas A&M Galveston. Here, she analyzed data gathered from a survey conducted along the Gulf Coast to examine the relationship between climate change concern and experiencing a natural disaster. Additionally, Anna researched the impacts of dredging along the eastern shore by measuring the incidental mortality of scallops. She also worked on a project that explored how different temperatures and salinities throughout the summer effect the diversity of phytoplankton found in the Delaware Bay using various DNA lab techniques. At the Bren School, Anna is specializing in Coastal Marine Resource Management, where she hopes to discover new solutions to mitigate the effects of climate change on the ocean’s ecosystems.
