Sequoia Scientific, Inc. is pleased to announce that Dr. Wayne Slade joined the company in September 2011. He holds a Ph.D. in Oceanography with focus in Ocean Optics from University of Maine, where he worked with Professor Emmanuel Boss on the optical properties of the marine environment as influenced by suspended particle dynamics.
Dr. Slade is experienced in deployment of optical sensors in coastal and open ocean environments, in design and execution of laboratory studies using these same sensors, and in the analysis of data from field and laboratory experiments. He also has expertise in computer modeling of the optical properties of particles, signal and image processing, and intelligent algorithm design. A few key publications are listed below.
