My interdisciplinary (engineering and chemistry) research focus is on advancing environmental observation through the development and deployment of novel optical sensors for measurement of key chemical species. In my lab, we design, build, and deploy advanced laser-based chemical sensors for environments ranging from the deep sea to Arctic environments. Potential projects for 2018 include developing and testing small gas sensors and working on new optical methods for detecting micro plastics.
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is dedicated to research and education to advance understanding of the ocean and its interaction with the Earth system, and to communicating this understanding for the benefit of society. Learn more »
