Bio

Patricia Schwindinger graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in Anthropology. She is interested in long term trends in ship technology and trade, especially during the colonial period. For her masterQs thesis she is analyzing data from ship log books compiled by the CLIWOC project, and is looking at the effect of warfare on shipping from the period 1750-1850. In 2014 she participated in the excavation of the GnaliƧ shipwreck, a 16th century Venetian merchant that sank off the coast of Croatia. She is also currently Secretary for the TAMU chapter of the Society for Underwater Technology.
