Elayna Daniels, of Phillipsburg, New Jersey, graduated from Davidson College in May 2021 with a B.S. in Environmental Studies. Following a semester spent abroad in the Turks and Caicos Islands during her junior year, Elayna was inspired to pursue marine science at the graduate level. She completed a field research internship with Chicago Zoological Society’s Sarasota Dolphin Research Program in the summer of 2020 and is eager to continue her marine studies in the upcoming year. As a graduate of a liberal arts college, Elayna is interested in working with citizen science organizations and is passionate about incorporating different perspectives and disciplines into her marine research. An avid freediver, Elayna is also excited to explore the waters off the Cornish coast as well as experience the unique culture and natural beauty of Cornwall. During her free time, she hopes to go on many walks around the area with her dog, Freddy, and become involved with local dive groups.
