Work and Focus
I am currently an early stage PhD student in Marine Science and Conservation within the Duke University's Nicholas School for the Environment working with Dave Johnston in the Marine Robotics and Remote Sensing Center. I'm still deciding where to focus but am particularly interested in remote sensing applications and autonomous exploration systems that will be relevant for marine science as well as for exploring and understanding other bodies within our solar system.
