Airlie is a Graduate student in the Ocean Engineering department pursuing a master’s degree in Ocean Engineering: Ocean Mapping. She attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington for her undergraduate degree, graduating with a B.Sc. in Physics: Physical Oceanography in May of 2017. In July of 2017, she received a commission in the NOAA Corps, serving aboard NOAA Ship Rainier as a Junior Officer before reporting to the Marine Operations Center – Atlantic as the Operations Manager. While there, she augmented as the acting Operations Officer aboard NOAA Ship Thomas Jefferson, and as a deck Watch Officer aboard NOAA Ship Ferdinand R. Hassler. She spends her spare time tracking storms in the Atlantic, waiting for surf. Airlie is looking forward to learning more about the underlying principles of hydrography to pair with the operational experience she gained in the field.
