Research Interests

After focusing on ocean chemistry during his Master’s degree at the USF College of Marine Science, Sean Beckwith shifted his interest to the technology behind the measurements, such as sensors that capture the temperature, salinity, oxygen content, light availability and nutrient levels in the coastal waters around Florida.  While pursuing a Ph.D. with Dr. Mark Luther, director of the USF Center for Maritime and Port Studies, he works closely with the CMS Ocean Technology Group to analyze the data retrieved by sensors carried aboard underwater gliders.  Presently, he is looking for ways to utilize machine learning practices to elucidate trends in the large amount of data collected by the gliders.
