Husky Bites presents Special Guest Andrew Barnard

World Water Day Event

Director, Great Lakes Research Center
Associate Professor, Mechanical Engineering—Engineering Mechanics

Topic: Don't miss this special Husky Bites program in celebration of World Water Day! Dr. Andrew Barnard and Mr. Travis White will present some of the exciting work they and their fellow researchers at the Great Lakes Research Center are doing around the Great Lakes and beyond, including engineering an autonomous jetski that will help map the bottom of Lake Superior and advance research in the area of marine autonomy. Autonomous marine vehicles can aid in data collection to identify invasive species, monitor the effects of climate change, evaluate fish populations, assess water quality, and much more. Not only does their widespread adoption and use help to protect our limited water resources for economic, environmental, and social benefits but also related technologies promise to make global shipping smarter, cleaner, and more efficient. Throughout the conversation, Andrew and Travis will share a few tall tales from their experiences working on and around the water that inspire their work and fuel their passion for protecting water resources.
