My main role is the management and operation of the SAMS UUVs, with experience in Seagliders, Slocums, Remus and Gavia. My work also includes other physical oceanography instrumentation (moorings and ship-based), and includes maintenance, deployment and data processing.
I regularly participate in research cruises, particularly in the North Atlantic and Arctic regions.
I contribute to the SAMS BSc degree, lecturing in the H3 Marine Robotics module and providing instrumentation support during fieldtrips.
Beyond SAMS, I am involved in the European Glider Observatories (EGO) community and I am part of the MASTS Technology, Platforms and Sensors Forum steering committee.
