I am a roboticist specializing in control theory and path planning for autonomous underwater vehicles. My research is a nexus of applied mathematics, ocean science and engineering. The motivation for my work is to develop enabling technologies that efficiently and effectively measure, monitor and assess the condition of aquatic ecosystems.
