Hangzhou Wang is a WHOI Guest Student from Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China. He is a doctoral candidate in Mechatronics, a combination of mechanical and electrical engineering within the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Zhejiang University. His advisor at Zhejiang University is Dr. Ying CHEN. Hangzhou was awarded a scholarship from the China Scholarship Council to visit the Laney Lab and conduct his doctoral research in the US.

Hangzhou's graduate research is on autonomous ocean observing systems. He is currently working on developing an autonomous, multichannel fiber optic spectrometer system for monitoring light levels in sea ice over annual scales.

WHOI Summer Student Fellows

Paul Lerner was a WHOI Summer Student Fellow (SSF) in the Laney lab in summer 2012, coming from The University of California, Berkeley. Paul spent his summer research exploring field data from new bio-optical sensors deployed on Ice-Tethered Profilers under Arctic ice sheets. Paul is now in the MIT/WHOI Joint Program, pursuing his doctorate.

Erin Larragoite was a WHOI Summer Student Fellow in 2013, coming from the University of New Mexico. Erin also worked on under-ice bio-optical data, as well as satellite remote sensing data of sea ice cover over the entire Arctic Ocean.
