Phone Conversation with Professor Yang Shen from URI


I just got off the phone with professor Yang Shen from The Graduate School of Oceanography at the University of Rhode Island and it sounds very promising for me.  I believe he recognizes my ambition and determination and he said he was going to start putting together a program for me.  I'm very excited about this because it is the first real big lead I have in my graduate school quest and GSO is like the Harvard of Oceanography schools so it would be great to graduate with a PhD from there.  I would be working on a tsunami monitoring experiment involving inverted echo-sounders mounted to the bottom of the ocean and connected via satellite or glider relay to information centers on land.  He also mentioned the possibility of me helping to install seismic monitors in Tibet this summer....Obviously I'm pretty excited!
