Antonio Rodriguez – Zarnoch Lab

My name is Antonio Rodriguez, and I am an incoming senior student at SUNY Maritime College in the Bronx, New York. I live in Queens, New York, and previously worked in the West Village of Manhattan in the restaurant industry. I am currently studying for a bachelor's in marine environmental science, with my minor being Marine Biology. My program focuses on the environmental and chemical reactions that take place within the world’s oceans and atmosphere. My minor has allowed for further specializations into zoological research which I hope to focus on in the future. This summer I will be working with Dr. Zarnoch from Baruch College with a primary focus on urban salt marsh ecology and sustainability. In my free time I enjoy reading, museums, cooking, spending time with family & friends and going out dancing. I am extremely excited to be able to work with like-minded scientists and protégés this summer to better understand our urban environments.
