After working in industry on military buoys, I returned to the academic world to design, build, and test new oceanographic instrumentation such as inertial- and GPS-based wave sensors, meteorological and oceanographic monitoring buoys, and autonomous sensing platforms such as AUVs and ASVs.

As a technical diver and instructor, I have had the pleasure of leading several scientific missions such as remote lake surveys in the Arctic, under-ice and ROV-assisted dives in the Great Lakes, and reef studies in the Atlantic Ocean.

At the University of Delaware, I work and do research as the Lead Engineer for the Delaware Environmental Observing System (DEOS), along with the Air-Sea Interaction Laboratory. For more information, check out my DOES website:
