Research Statement

My research goal is to use unmanned marine vehicles to investigate novel acoustic sensing and autonomy.  Particular areas of interest include acoustic navigation for low-cost AUVs, sensing and perception for monitoring of aquaculture, passive acoustic tracking, seabed target localization/classification, and multi-vehicle command and control.
