InvolvementSamuel participated in the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program the last two years. Last summer, he and his faculty mentor, Roman Zajac, professor and chair of biology and environmental science, set out to 10 salt marsh systems from Stratford to Stonington, studying the habitat use of fiddler crabs. The SURF program is supported through a generous donation from Frank Carrubba ’69, ’79 M.S., a member of the University’s Board of Governors, and his wife, Pat. Additionally, during the summer of 2011, Samuel worked at Schooner Inc., a nonprofit marine science educational camp in New Haven.
