Meet the Facilitators: 

Claudia Mazur is the first person in her Polish family to receive a college degree and pursue a Ph.D. In college, she participated in many research internships, which led her to a career in science. Currently, Claudia is a Ph.D. Candidate at Boston University and the first NOAA Margaret A. Davidson Fellow at the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.





Samuel Domingues is originally from Sao Paulo, Brazil and the first in his family to earn a bachelor’s degree in the United States. Just last year, he was awarded the first minority student internship at WBNERR researching the impact of climate change on salt marsh habitats. Samuel is currently looking into graduate school to further his passion and commitment to the natural sciences
