About Lucy Wanzer
A Maine Coast Semester 51 Alum, and a native of Portland, Maine, Lucy is very excited to join the Science teaching team fall 2020.
Lucy graduated from Wellesley College in 2019 and holds a degree in Geosciences. She is excited about all things related to climate, oceanography, and rocks! In college, Lucy participated in multiple scientific research cruises, her favorite being a trip in the North Atlantic that departed from Iceland.
This past year, Lucy was awarded a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship. This fellowship gave her the opportunity to pursue a passion project on a global scale. She studied small boats in coastal communities and her fellowship took her to Greece, Australia, New Zealand, and Indonesia. In each country, she studied a specific type of boat local to the area. One of her favorite parts of traveling is eating! She loved the tomatoes and olive oil in Greece and the curry and rambutan in Indonesia.
