Chair: Jack Bonoli
Education: Stevens Institute of Technology, Naval Engineering. (2022)
About: My name is Jack Bonoli, I am a Junior 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. After serving on the Student Steering Committee as Communications Chair in 2020, I am extremely excited for the opportunity to chair the Student Steering Committee this coming year!
Vice Chair: Nicholas Stout
Education: University of Michigan, Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, (2021)
About: Born in Houston, Texas, I grew up in a city reliant on its marine industry, but personally fell in love with the sea surfing the Gulf of Mexico. This and my interest in the STEM field fueled my decision to attend the University of Michigan and pursue a degree in NAME. I became active with my Student Section my first year, eventually serving on the executive board.
My passion for surfing led me to pursue an Oceanography minor and some very cold Great Lakes swell! Through studying the oceans and NAME, I’ve realized the imminent need for sustainable power consumption habits and the potential the marine industry has to accomplish this. At SMC 2020, I was fascinated by the dialogue on new technology and methods to create a more sustainable industry. I look forward to serving as Vice Chair of SSC, and am particularly excited to engage students with the marine industry and further dialogue on clean energy!
Communications Chair: Caroline MacLeod
Education: Florida Institute of Technology, Ocean Engineering. (2022)
About: My name is Caroline, I am a junior at Florida Institute of Technology living in Melbourne, FL! I grew up on the Chesapeake Bay on the Easter Shore of Maryland, in a small town called Galena,MD. Growing up near the water sparked my interest in marine biology, and I further discovered the field of Ocean Engineering. My combination of interest in marine life and STEM topics has led me to become involved in the field of biofouling and ecologically sound engineering. I currently assist the university in research with the Indian River Lagoon in Florida involving ecological engineering. I am looking forward to a great year with the Student Steering Committee!
Secretary: Edward Angelinas
Education: University of Michigan, B.S.E. Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (2022), Minor in Physics
My name is Edward Angelinas and I am a junior in the University of Michigan’s Department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. I grew up around the US Navy, and I always enjoyed the ships. After I transferred to the University of Michigan, I joined the Naval Architecture department and never looked back.
Since coming to Michigan, I have had the opportunity to complete research on hydrodynamics, intern at the NSWC Carderock, and join Michigan’s Human Powered Submarine Design team. After I graduate I hope to join the US Navy as a Submarine Warfare Officer. I am excited to have this opportunity to join the SNAME Student Steering Committee as your secretary for this coming year!
Electronic media chair: Zachary Peter Zachary
Education: Alexandria University, Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, (2022)
About: my name is Zachary Peter i grew up in Alexandria i live by the sea and the harbour i always loved the how ships look since i watched them since i was very young my godfather is also a marine engineer so i grew up to find this career as my best path i am chairman of SNAME Alexandria University in egypt i think SNAME is a chance to grow more in the industry that i would have never missed
Beside marine field i also have different hobbies like running, programming, photography, graphics designing and video editing
I worked in the tourism industry when i was young and that gave me the chance to deal with different cultures and accept the differences in the people i meet at any scale
I have many side jobs and civil work as programming lecturer for kids and helping with media for medical conveys
I am fond of how Artificial intelligence became a part of the daily life for all of us and i push myself forward to have a graduation project related to ships with AI “self driven and automated ship statues checking”
Resource Management Chair: Spencer Dugan
Education: Webb Institute, B.S. Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (2017); DTU/NTNU, MSc Eng. in Engineering Design and Applied Mechanics and MSc in Maritime Technology (2021)
About: My name is Spencer Dugan. I am originally from Houston, Texas, and grew up spending most of my time fishing and boating in the Gulf of Mexico. This steered me towards Webb, where I spent a fantastic four years and had several internships in the maritime industry, including stints onboard an LNG carrier and in a Texas shipyard.
After graduating, I had the opportunity to work for Resolve Marine Group as part of the Hurricane Irma response team. In total, we removed approximately 250 destroyed or sunken vessels from the Florida Keys. Afterwards, I spent a year at BMT Designers & Planners as a naval architect before deciding to pursue a master’s degree program.
I’m currently in my second year of the Joint Nordic Master in Maritime Engineering, specializing in ship operations at the Technical University of Denmark. For my master’s thesis, I plan to apply machine learning techniques to full scale measurement data to optimize ship voyages in terms of minimizing fuel consumption and fatigue damage.
I look forward to serving as the Resource Management Chair and supporting the student academics of SNAME!
