Current research and/or projects

My primary role is to head the LaPerouse Zooplankton Monitoring Program. I plan, coordinate, and run the data collection cruises, analyse, archive, and report the findings. I also provide scientific and technical support for other ongoing section projects. This includes data collection, processing, analysis, and archiving. In addition, I am responsible for the operation and maintenance of much of the section's electronic instrumentation. I am the section's computer hardware and software support liaison, and act as account manager for mainframe users.
