Research Statement

I am an acoustical oceanographer with a background in marine biology. I specialize in detecting and quantifying targets in the water column using broadband acoustic backscatter. I am interested in using this approach to better understand a wide range of oceanographic topics. So far, this has included oil spills, carbon sequestration monitoring and determining right whale foraging habitat.
