Popular Press

Ka‘ena Volcano — Our discovery of a previously unrecognized volcano in Hawai‘i was highlighted in various local and national news outlets, including NBC and Fox news, Scientific American, Huffington Post, Live Science, and others. (Original press release from UH)

Casper Octopod — Data from our Ka‘ena project again made the news when we realized that an adorable octopod we observed during a dive was a previously unidentified species. In combination with other observations and a connection with a deep-sea mining study, the little Casper octopod again made international news, including the BBC, Washington Post, local news, and others. (UH press release)

Galápagos Research Expedition — Our month-long seagoing research expedition to the Galápagos Spreading Center made local news for both the underwater research we were doing and our Teacher at Sea outreach program.

HURLHawai‘i Undersea Research Laboratory (HURL) — NOAA's undersea research center for Hawai‘i and the Western Pacific, established in cooperation with the University of Hawai‘i. HURL operates a collection of manned and remotely-operated submersibles for deep sea science research. I recently joined them on the R/V Kilo Moana for the sea trials of their newest ROV, the Lu‘ukai.


EarthCubeEarthCube — EarthCube is a large-scale effort led by the National Science Foundation to develop a community-driven data and knowledge management system for the geosciences, with the goal of transforming how we conduct research in this data-intensive world.
