ONC Staff Profile
GIS Specialist, Observatory Operations
Dr. Sean Mullan is pursuing an interdisciplinary scientific career that integrates his training in geology, oceanography and geomatics. His PhD dissertation was on seabed sediment dynamics and geomorphology in tidal straits (UVic, 2017). It is of relevance to the routing of seafloor cables/pipelines, the situation of tidal turbines for renewable energy extraction, and understanding benthic marine habitats. Sean is also interested in ocean mapping, especially bathymetric change detection techniques.
