Michael Low

Michael Low has always shown a passion for the environment, educating himself and working in various subsets of the environmental field for his entire career. His primary interests include coastal geology, geomorphology, land-sea interaction, with side interests in aquatic ecology and aquaculture.

Michael has gained substantial local knowledge of the coastal New England area and the dynamics of the landscapes while working with the Center for Coastal Studies, National Parks Service and Nantucket field station over the past several years. He has a vested interest in his studies and has aligned his personal interests with his educational and work studies as he travels often to hike, SCUBA dive and surf in various locations to better understand the environment and landscapes on a greater scale.

Michael is an M.S. candidate in the Marine Science and Technology program at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, under Dr. Borrelli. He is studying geomorphic land sea interactions on the Cape Cod National Seashore.
