"U of R alumnus conducts research on rare coral reefs"
By Katie Olson
When asked what he did over the summer, University of Redlands alumnus Jason Gonsalves ’19 has an unusual answer: conducting research in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
After graduating with a degree in physics last April, Gonsalves embarked on a summer program with Sea Education Association (SEA) that took him to the Phoenix Islands, a remote group of eight islands of coral. He was one of a select group from a diverse range of colleges and universities who conducted this research to assist in the ongoing development of an effective conservation plan for the region.
