 I am currently working on the creation of a methods to allow the automation of Image  processing and geo-referencing go images taken in the abyss. When this stage is complete I will be working on identifying the organisms present within these images and post processing of this data.

 

Previously  I worked on the ecology and distribution of deep-sea corals in the Northern Atlantic
