Congratulations to Joe Anarumo who successfully presented his Masters work on Wednesday. Joe is a member of the first cohort of the Operational Oceanography masters program. During his time in DMCS Joe became an expert in using open-source drifter simulation code. His thesis plugged local observational resources into the drifter simulation code OpenDrift to create an easy to use tool for tracking things floating in the mid-Atlantic bight. His thesis, “An Open-Source Software Application for Drifter Trajectory Prediction in the Mid-Atlantic Bight” has been submitted for presentation at the Marine Technology Society annual conference.
Joe will bring his data skills to his new role as an Environmental Science Analyst at Sage Services where he will help run data analysis for the Water Quality Compliance Modeling Program for the watershed of Philadelphia. Congrats Joe!!
