Scientific Computing in the Southern Ocean – Rob Blackwell

Rob Blackwell is a PhD candidate at the British Antarctic Survey and University of East Anglia. A former R&D director and enterprise software developer, he’s now trying his hand at scientific computing to help discover more about the biomass and behaviour of Antarctic Krill in the Southern Ocean.

Rob will talk about the Julia programming language, scientific computing and the two-language problem, with examples from his work with Sonar data recorded onboard research vessels and ocean gliders.
