WHO WE ARE
The core team is based out of Dr. Doug Wallace's lab in the Department of Oceanography at Dalhousie University (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada). We're a mixed bag of scientists, engineers, and technologists, all with one common interest - developing and adapting existing technology for ocean research and exploration.
"Human pressures and dependency on the ocean are now global in scope, and extending deeper. What happens in a very distant part of the ocean—or atmosphere, for that matter—can affect us in Canada very directly. And at the same time, the waters and ecosystems off Canada play an enormously significant role for the well-being and economies of Canada and the World."
Dr. Doug Wallace, underDOG Project Supervisor
ENGINEERS & TECHNOLOGISTS
We have partnered with PhD candidate Florian Lange and his supervisor Prof. Dr. Gernot Friedrichs from the Institut für Physikalische Chemie at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel (Kiel, Germany) on sensor development.
