What do I do here?
About 1/2 of my work is in preparation and working on international research cruises, often with CTD/LADCP systems, undersea imaging, navigation and telemetry equipment, often as team leader or lead engineer. 

The second half of the year is support of the SSSG and MISO (Multidisciplinary Instrumentation in Support of Oceanography) equipment and systems, and custom design and engineering of new instrumentation, such as the SDSL Data-Link.

The THIRD half of the year involves the inevitable unanticipated missions that develop quickly and demand fast execution- Gulf of Mexico blowout kind of work.

Most enjoyable is my work with the wide range of people, especially young scientists and engineers within and outside of WHOI. We both learn a lot.

And whatever I get done is done better with some dogs around.
