Brad de Young – Memorial University, Canada

Brad de Young holds the Captain Robert A. Bartlett Chair in Oceanography at Memorial University. His research interests are in North Atlantic oceanography – coastal and open ocean, climate dynamics, ocean ecology and fisheries oceanography.

He works on the development of new sampling techniques, such as ocean gliders and autonomous surface craft, and in the coupling of biological and physical models for improving our understanding of the influence of circulation on marine organisms. He is interested in developing a long-term, sustainable approach to ocean observation.
