Welcome!

I am currently at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (Florida Atlantic University), working with Dr. Mike Twardowski. My research focuses on problems of imaging and vision underwater.

Heard about Sea-thru? See this page for publication details, and this article in the Scientific American for an explanation of the method. [Note: Sea-thru does not need a color chart to work.]
