He worked at the Woods Hole Ocean­o­graphic In­sti­tu­tion in the USA as a vis­it­ing re­searcher, com­plet­ing his Dip­loma thesis on the topic of ad­apt­ive con­trol of an AUV (ABE) for ter­rain fol­low­ing. In 1995 he joined the Dy­nam­ical Sys­tems and Con­trol Labor­at­ory in the De­part­ment of Mech­an­ical En­gin­eer­ing at the Johns Hop­kins Uni­versity, Bal­timore, MD, USA. Here he earned a M.Sc. and PhD de­gree on the topic of iden­ti­fic­a­tion, mod­el­ling and con­trol of un­der­wa­ter propul­sion sys­tems. He joined the Dy­nam­ical Con­trol Sys­tems Labor­at­ory at Prin­ceton Uni­versity as a Re­search As­so­ci­ate in 2000 where he worked on multi-vehicle sys­tems and un­der­wa­ter gliders. In 2003 he joined the Na­tional Re­search Coun­cil Canada – In­sti­tute for Ocean Tech­no­logy in St. John’s , NL, Canada as an As­so­ci­ate Re­search Of­ficer. He joined Me­morial Uni­versity of New­found­land in St. John’s in 2008 where he star­ted the Autonom­ous Ocean Sys­tems Labor­at­ory (www.aosl.ca) in 2009, work­ing on un­manned mar­ine vehicles and sys­tems for harsh en­viron­ments.
