Research Scientist, Fisheries and Oceans Canada

Instrumentation & Sensing Technologies; Marine Ecosystems; Physical Oceanography/Ocean Circulation

Current role in the field of ocean sciences: Federal or State Employee

Area(s) of expertise within ocean sciences: Ocean observation with particular emphasis on physical-biological interactions; acoustic scattering from oceanic zooplankton, turbulence, double diffusive interfaces and biological/physical thin layers; small-scale bio-physical interactions; importance of double-diffusion in Polar Regions; distinguishing acoustic scatter from biotic and physical sources; turbulence theory.

Interest in becoming a mentor: Until recently I was a university professor, teaching undergraduate and graduate students about ocean science. I remain keen on encouraging the next generation of ocean scientists and think one-on-one interactions are a key part of success in the field — particularly for the younger generation who seem to have larger challenges in breaking into the oceanographic job market.
