SCOPE Spotlight

Eric Shimabukuro

Getting to know your Ops team: Our September/October spotlight introduces Eric Shimabukuro, a member of the Hawai'i-based SCOPE Ops Team. Eric was our first Ops tech, jumping on the inaugural HOT-SCOPE cruise (HOT 267, Nov 2014), and he has sailed on nearly every HOT and SCOPE cruise since. He is our flow cytometry InFlux master, is often found digging around the UH Marine Center storage container, and coordinates SCOPE visitors so we can "effectively go from tarmac to ship deck" and get our science started. His opinion on the best part about working for SCOPE? "The diversity, both in people and science. It is a chance for researchers from across disciplines to share and learn from one another."
