Areas of Interest

I'm a PhD candidate in Oceanography at the University of Maine. I'm interested in linking the optical properties of water to the bulk of the leaving particles in the ocean using both remote sensing and BGC-Argo floats.
Another interest of mine is to study the plankton biomass and species composition with imagery (IFCB, FlowCam, UVP) and relate it to the optical properties of ocean.
