NERDS RULE INC. Ocean Ambassador Blog
Our San Diego Community Partners at UCSD and Scripps Institution of Oceanography will be starting a "LIFE AT SEA" blog with NERDS RULE INC.
Our mentor---Dr. Alejandra Sanchez-Rios is a postdoctoral fellow in physical oceanography. She is originally from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico where she grew up. She has been studying the ocean since 2006 and has spent many months in a research vessel studying how the ocean currents move around the planet, transporting heat and salt. She is also passionate about creating an inclusive, equitable, and diverse environment in academia with a social justice lens.

Multiscale Ocean Dynamics (MOD) is a specialized team of oceanographers, engineers, and graduate students solving vexing problems in ocean physics and biology. We develop, build, and deploy novel scientific instrumentation to observe the ocean in new ways. Our diverse team collectively spends several months a year at sea making fresh discoveries across the world's
