Archaeological Impacts of Climate Change
Jeneva Wright graduated with a Bachelors of Arts degree in History from the University of Montana. She is currently a student at East Carolina University where she is studying for her Master of Arts in Maritime Archeology. As the child of two National Park Service scientists, Jeneva grew up having an interest in exploration and adventures. She is an avid SCUBA diver and is fascinated by the oceans, particularly maritime history and submerged cultural resources. Her previous research has focused on the development of public outreach programming for underwater archaeological sites. Past projects have included the documentation of shipwrecks in the Great Lakes, excavation of the presumed flagship of famed pirate Blackbeard - the Queen Anne's Revenge, and work on Civil War blockade runners off North Carolina's coast.
"My hope is that the Mosaics in Science internship will allow me to begin pursuing data for my doctoral dissertation, and lead to a better understanding of the impacts of climate change, and how managers can better protect underwater resources."
