Michael Li is a research scientist at the Atlantic branch ofthe Geological Survey of Canada. After obtaining degrees from OceanUniversity of China and Oregon State University, Michael has workedin and published on the coastal and shelf systems of China, UnitedStates, and Canada. His current research interests include boundarylayer dynamics and sediment transport processes through in situmeasurements of instrumented seabed landers, offshore geohazardsand mobility of large-scale bedforms through multibeam and sidescansurveys and sampling, physical and numerical models ofhydrodynamics and sediment transport processes on continentalshelves and in coastal environments.
Chris Sherwood is a research oceanographer with the U. S.Geologcal Survey and works at the Woods Hole Coastal and MarineScience Center. Dr. Sherwood studied at Bowdoin College and theUniversity of Washington. Before joining the USGS, he worked forthe marine research division of the Commonwealth Scientific andIndustry Research Organisation in Hobart, Australia. His researchis focused on development of open-source models for sedimenttransport in coastal ocean environment, and on field measurementsto evaluate the models.
Phil Hill is a research scientist with the GeologicalSuvey of Canada. Since graduating with degrees from theUniversity of Oxford and Dalhousie University, he has practicedmarine geology in government, universities and the privatesector. He has published on marine geology and sedimentologyall around Canada, including the east and west coasts, the BeaufortSea and Hudson Bay.
