Cecilia Shin is one of our new divers. I'd describe her as a "compact ball of energy," eager to pitch in and help make things happen. Her family moved from Korea to the U.S. when she was four years old, and was raised in Los Angeles. She moved to Santa Cruz, where she met Steve Clabuesch. They've been happily married for two years now. Cecil and Steve are avid scuba divers, and I wouldn't be surprised if their wedding vows were voiced underwater.
The above photos show Cecil returning from her checkout dive at McMurdo Station, and blasting a dive hole at New Harbor. She's the third woman diver on my research program over the years ... I'm a very lucky scientist to be associated with such talented people!
