I am  a scientist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research institute where I study Harmful Algal Blooms.  My research emphasis involves the design, construction, deployment, and maintenance of a network of autonomous water quality platformsI study the data from these platforms to determine potential factors that could influence Harmful Algal Blooms.

My dissertaiton emphasis was optical oceanography where I tested and developed models to determine the constituents within a water column based on optical properties.
