Miriam grew up in the south of France and became passionate about the Ocean at an early age. Being a diver since the age of twelve, she decided to move to Australia for her undergraduate studies and earn a joint degree in Marine Biology and Chemistry at James Cook University in northeastern Queensland. Being located in … Continued
Despite being raised in the landlocked prairies of Regina, Saskatchewan, Brett became intrigued with the ocean at a young age. He received his BSc (hons) in Marine Biology from Dalhousie University in 2016 where he developed a passionate interest in the processes that facilitate ecosystem function and the effect of human induced stressors on marine … Continued
Have you ever wondered how scientists deal with large visual data sets? When underwater robotic vehicles like Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) and Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV) collect images and video, that data is stored for analysis and used to better understand the explored habitat. There are several programs that do a great job of making … Continued
Henrietta Dulai is an Associate Professor at the Department of Geology and Geophysics at the University of Hawaii. Dulai earned an engineering degree in nuclear chemistry from the Czech Technical University and a doctorate in chemical oceanography from Florida State University. She is a geochemist who uses natural and man-made radionuclides as tracers to study … Continued
Les Watling is Professor of Biology at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa and Emeritus Professor of Oceanography at the University of Maine’s Darling Marine Center. His interests range from ecology of marine sediment communities, community analysis of seamounts in the deep-sea, global biogeography of bathyal and abyssal areas of the ocean, to taxonomy of … Continued
Natalie Summers is a graduate student at the University of Hawaii. Her research focuses on the biogeography of deep sea octocorals in the Pacific Ocean. Her research objective is to test proposed biogeographical provinces, regions defined by physical oceanographic proxies such as temperature, organic matter flux, salinity and dissolved oxygen, by using biological data from … Continued
Prof Ann Vanreusel is head of the research group Marine Biology of Ghent University (Belgium). Since her post doc research (from 1990) in the framework of the European MAST (Marine Science and Technology) projects, she became an expert in deep-sea benthos. Numerous publications (> 170) and international collaborations attest to this. Most of the deep-sea … Continued
