Research Interests
Physical and optical water quality monitoring systems, spatial and temporal event mapping

Current Activity
I am involved in the design, construction and maintenance of autonomous and remote water quality monitoring stations. In addition to system development, I rebuild and calibrate these multi-parameter sampling systems. I handle GIS analyses of data collected with our “flow through” water quality monitoring system. My work also includes system deployment and retrieval, as well as assistance with field sampling efforts.   

FWC Facts:
Red tides have been documented along Florida's Gulf coast since the 1840s and likely occurred earlier. Fish kills around Tampa Bay were mentioned in the logs of Spanish explorers.
