I am a Mechanical Engineer, with nineteen years in the Marine Research field. In addition to the projects I initiate and manage as the Lead engineer and/or project manager, I am providing engineering design and analysis for several of the AUV and BUOY platforms here at MBARI. I also provide several of the research groups support on a yearly on-going basis as part of the hardware side of their technical developments.
One of my primary interests is in new materials and manufacturing technology and their application to a marine environment.
Besides my time here at MBARI as an engineer, my background includes twenty years of “at sea” experience with the technical side of oceanography as an ocean going technician and field engineer.
