Hydrographic Surveying Lecturer
University of Otago
Lecturer and PhD student
Bio: I am a lecturer and PhD student at the University of Otago's School of Surveying where I manage Hydrographic Surveying – teaching students and working with researchers from Surveying, Marine Science and Geology, as well as running demonstrations with visiting school students.
My research interests include: Underwater Acoustics, sound velocity measurement and application; use of multibeam sonar in shallow coastal waters and deep offshore canyons; using hydrographic data for more than one purpose - charting, geophysical analysis, habitat mapping...; hydrographic surveying in rivers and lakes; and, hydrographic surveying education and development in NZ/Australasia.
Prior to working at Otago I completed my MSc (Hydrography) on the FIG/IHO/ICA recognised Category A course at the University of Plymouth, UK and my BSurv (Hons) at the University of Otago, NZ. My background also includes several years working worldwide with Fugro on a variety of hydrographic projects including charting, habitat mapping, oil and gas, renewables and offshore construction.
