Robert Bartlett Professor of Oceanography, Memorial University of Newfoundland

I am an active researcher keen to explore new paths to apply the knowledge and skills developed over a long career as an oceanographer. The ocean needs our help and we must find better ways to study the ocean, to work with the data collected about the ocean and to manage the challenges facing the ocean and, by implication, we as a society. Support for the development of new initiatives and programs to observe the ocean are important but so too are considerations of how to ensure that our work best addresses the needs of the ocean and society. I have been active in the planning of national and international science programs and the links to public policy and management and would like to explore new opportunites to link science and society and economy.
