Overview

I founded Seaturtle.org in 1997 with a vision of helping the sea turtle research community and to enable the development of innovative solutions to sea turtle conservation issues. The website provides the conservation community and the public with the ability to track marine vertebrates in near real time. My expertise lies in sea turtle biology and conservation, use of satellite telemetry and remote sensing to understand the ecology of marine protected species, and developing tools to facilitate data sharing and distribution. The focus of recent efforts has been the study of the spatial ecology of marine protected species. My research activities include the use of satellite telemetry to study seasonal migrations patterns, investigating the relationship between marine turtles and their environment, and the development of spatial information systems to improve resource management. Through this work I collaborate with colleagues around the world. I am more generally interested in data management issues, including database design, open access and standardization of data collection, management and analysis.
