About: "
Hello all, my name is Emilio Domenech, I grew up in Ponce, Puerto Rico and am currently a senior at Stevens Institute of Technology majoring in Naval Engineering. For as long as I can remember I have been passionate about boats and the ocean. Through Naval engineering I found the opportunity to both stay true to my passion and make the world a better place. After graduation, I hope to work in ship design and making the maritime industry more sustainable. 

 I have been an active member of SNAME since freshman year and have served as secretary for both the SSC and my school section. This year I have the pleasure to serve SNAME as chair of the SSC. My goal this year is to create effective and consistent communication between students and SNAME headquarters. To help us achieve this the SSC is underway to create a SNAME leadership group chat and annual leadership reports. Please be in touch we are here to solve problems and continue to improve SNAME. 

Thank you all for being active members of SNAME and further propagating studies in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. The SSC and SNAME headquarters are excited to serve you as best as possible this year."

Education:
National Technical University of Athens, Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, MEng (2021)
About: "My name is Fotis Sarantopoulos and I was born and raised in Athens, Greece. I am currently in my 4th year of studies towards a Master’s degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens and I am also pursuing a Minor degree in Finance at the American College of Greece. During my studies, I have been involved in multiple student clubs and societies. Specifically, I was the Chief Operations Officer of SNAME NTUA, the Treasurer of the Board of European Students of Technology of Athens and I now serve as the Vice-Chair of SSC. I have taken part, won and organized several engineering competitions, so I really look forward to the annual Design Competition of SMC 2020. Moreover, as a member of SNAME, I really admire the whole organization and I believe that I can contribute to its development by the Student Steering Committee."

Education: Florida Institute of Technology, Ocean Engineering and Minor in Sustainability (2022)
About: "I’m a sophomore in Ocean Engineering with a minor in sustainability from Florida Tech. I grew up in Kansas and became interested in the ocean during family trips. I’m still new to the industry and am not sure what field I want to work in, but I hope to use my engineering skills to better the state of the environment, specifically the ocean. I’m excited for the opportunity to serve as secretary and look forward to a great year! If you have any recommendations for the job fair then feel free to contact me."





Communications Chair: Jack Bonoli

Education: Stevens Institute of Technology, Naval Engineering. (2022)
About: "My name is Jack Bonoli, I am a Sophomore at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ. I was born and raised in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, where I developed a fascination with ships and boats. I attended Tabor Academy in Marion, MA, where I worked as a deckhand on the school’s schooner in the spring seasons, and took an introductory Naval Architecture class. These maritime based activities and classes only reaffirmed my childhood interests, so I decided to pursue Naval Architecture as my college major. Since arriving at Stevens, I have been fortunate enough to work in the Naval Research Lab and the Davidson Lab High Speed Towing Tank. I am so excited and grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of the SNAME Student Steering Committee and my continuing my journey into the maritime industry."

Education
: National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering, MEng (2021)
About: "I was born and raised in Greece’s Capital and I am a 4th year student in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens. I love everything about our field, from marine engines, to designing, to fluid mechanics, to strength calculation and so I haven’t yet decided what my PhD thesis will regard. Having interfered with the activities of SNAME’s Greek Section from the beginning of my studies, I have found out there is equally much to learn about the maritime affairs both outside of the university. I am very pleased to have been elected to be part of the SSC, the board of students, who consist the industry’s new generation, and I am ready to make good use of this position to further promote the organisation’s goals as it has promoted mine. Through the enhancement of the website and the updating of the social media pages I hope to reach out to all the Student Sections and bring out the best in them. When I am not studying, I enjoy playing classical piano, taking contemporary dance lessons, drawing and singing with my jazz band. I also love to travel around the world and meet new cultures and regions."

Immediate Past Chair: Natalie Gadelrab

Education: Florida Institute of Technology, Ocean Engineering, and Minor in Sustainability (May 2020)
About: "I'm a fourth year Ocean Engineering student with a minor in sustainability at Florida Tech. I grew up 5 minutes from the beach in sunny south Florida and was initially introduced to the maritime industry during a boat building competition in high school, followed by a tour of a ship yard. I've been the Chair of the Florida Tech SNAME student section since December of 2017 and was on the SSC as Communications Chair in 2018. During the past 2.5 years as an undergraduate at Florida Tech, I've explored many faces of Ocean Engineering - from working at the Center for Corrosion and Biofouling Control at Florida Tech, interning at a vibration analysis company in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, interning with Carnival Cruise Line, and presently working with a Naval Architecture firm. I've learned a lot that's helped me fall more and more in love with the industry. When I'm not working or studying I love to do yoga, travel and explore Disney. I was especially excited to serve as the Chair for 2019 and continue to give back to the society that has helped me grow so much over the past 4 years!"
