Jordan Stanway

Jordan Stanway grew up in the mountains and deserts of Colorado and Utah, but the call of the sea drew him to MIT as an undergraduate to study ocean engineering. Now in the MIT/WHOI Joint Program, he works on AUVs in the Deep Submergence Lab at WHOI. He says he is fascinated with movement through water and hydrodynamics. In his dreams, groups of robot penguins cooperatively explore the ocean depths and leap out of the water to waddle back to the lab. When he’s not playing with underwater vehicles, Stanway likes to ride his fixed-gear bike around the Cape and enjoys any chance he gets to explore the ocean in person by scuba or free diving.
