In late 2017, Erin served as one of two onboard education and outreach officers on the research vessel JOIDES Resolution for International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Expedition 372: Creeping Gas Hydrate Slides and Hikurangi LWD. Onboard education and outreach officers communicate the scientific objectives of the IODP expedition, organise and facilitate videoconferences between shore-based audiences such as schools, museums, and community centres, and promote shipboard activities through an expedition blog, social media, and YouTube channel.
