- I'm a graduate student now at
U.W. School of Oceanography
and a research assistant at
- My current research involves estimating primary production in Carr Inlet in Puget Sound from water-following (Lagrangian) measurements of downwelling light, backscattering, chlorophyll fluorescence and dissolved oxygen. Each measurement involves converting a time series to carbon, e.g. estimating the carbon-chlorophyll ratio from light and temperature. For more details, see my Ocean Sciences 2006 poster: In-Situ Measurement of Primary Productivity from a Lagrangian Float.
- My research advisor a Professor Eric D'Asaro. He has used the floats to study ocean mixing and air-sea gas exchange in hurricanes.
- During 1Q2006, I did some metadata work for Professor John Delaney. This involves enhancing University of Washington's DigitalWell media asset manager with MPEG-7 metadata descriptions. Also, I have proposed an XML representation of time series of data collected from the undersea explorer Jason 2 using an XML Schema based on the ArcGIS Marine Data Model. I have proposed various models for annotation and the architecture of a query/browsing, annotation and asset mangement workbench.
- Here are some Dinoflagellates (from culture) on my Swift FM-31 Field Microscope taken during a Phytoplanton Ecology lab. Genus/Species: Lingulodinium polyedrum (formerly Gonyaulax polyedra), typ. 35-40 um
- I spent June-July 2004 and June-July 2005 at Darling Marine Center, Walpole,
Maine studying ocean optics and ocean color.
