LSAMP Spotlight - Series of exceptional students who are driven and dedicated to the Garden State LSAMP
Tonian Robinson, Class of 2017
I am from the island of Jamaica. I migrated to the U.S in the year 2010. I finished two years of high school before attending to Rutgers University-Newark in 2012. In my second year at Rutgers I joined the Garden State - LSAMP. I have been working as a research student from the year 2013 after applying through LSAMP that led me to be employed by faculty in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences. I aided in Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR) research experiments for about four semesters. I am still currently a research student working with faculty to characterize hydrogeological properties of rock cores using geophysical properties. I wish to further my education in the geosciences specifically in geophysics and hydrogeology by attending graduate school.
