Pedro Menandro
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Department of Oceanography, Dalhousie University

I graduated from the Universidade Federal do Espirito Santo (Brazil) in Oceanography, where I also worked as a volunteer research assistant in the Marine Geosciences Lab (Labogeo) research group. Since my Oceanography B.Sc., I have been working on different fields related to ocean mapping. Prior to beginning my doctoral research, I earned an MSc in Environmental Oceanography (UFES - Brazil) and worked in coastal hydrography over a few years. I completed my PhD at the Universidade Federal do Espirito Santo (Brazil), spending part of my doctorate as a Visiting Graduate Research Student at Dalhousie University (Halifax, CA). My Ph.D. research focused on the in-depth analysis and development of seafloor classification based on multispectral MBES using machine learning approaches. My currently post-doctoral fellowship aims to investigate multispectral backscatter responses combined with geomorphometric attributes at different spatial scales, exploring different datasets, approaches and seabed classification tools..

Areas of expertise:

seabed classification

MBES backscatter

underwater acoustic data analysis
