1. The Surfer Biome Project

The surfer biome project is a scientific exploration set out to discovery just how connected we humans are to the natural world. Since Fall 2016, I have been traveling the world including England, Ireland, Morocco, California and Hawaii to examine the molecular composition of surfer. Gaining international recognition, this project looks at the chemicals and bacteria found on surfers and hopes to address issues around environmental conservation, food security and public health. I have completed the project and am writing up the results to share in a scientific peer reviewed journal.

 

2. Digitizing the Natural World

Working with the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo, I am using next generation analytical techniques to digitize and recreate environmental systems in 3D before they are lost. To learn more about this project see the work I am doing in the MEGA lab at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo

3. Ocean Conservation

Partnering with several agencies including Save the Waves Coalition and Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii, I will be looking to share stories of environmental conservation and community stewardship.
