ABOUT Halley

Halley graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a B.S. in Biological Sciences. During her senior year at URI, she participated in a study abroad program in Gold Coast, Australia. While in Australia, she enrolled in an intensive course in rainforest and coastal environments on North Stradbroke Island, performing a variety of ecological experiments and discovering her passion for marine biology in its application to ecology. After graduating, Halley obtained a certification as a Protected Species Observer and began working in the oil and gas industry, deploying on geotechnical and seismic survey vessels in Virginia and the Gulf of Mexico. She then transitioned to a laboratory setting as a full-time environmental & water quality technician, gaining knowledge in wet chemistry procedures and refining her skills in data collection, management, and reporting. In 2022, Halley successfully completed NOAA’s Industry Funded Scallop Observer training program. As an IFS observer, she deployed on day and multi-day trips out of Pt. Judith, New Bedford, and Cape Cod, working primarily with scallop dredges and gaining valuable experience in the biological sampling of scallops and bycatch. At CFF, Halley works as a Research Assistant / At-Sea Technician, supporting various research projects such as the Sponsor A Sea Scallop program and the Bycatch Reduction Engineering Program. She also works as an ASM instructor. In her free time, Halley enjoys surfing, hiking, scuba diving, reading, and golfing.
