As the team grows, we are lucky to be joined by people with a range of backgrounds and experiences who can each bring a new perspective to the work we are doing.
Our newest recruits are Erin Browne and Josh Chesterman who have joined our delivery team to help us on our way to our next stage of growth.
Erin is our Data Scientist and brings with her a wealth of knowledge from the maritime and marine science sectors. She achieved a first class (Hons) undergraduate degree in Marine Biology and Oceanography with a year of research experience at Climate Change Cluster UTS (Sydney), followed by completing a research master’s degree in Marine Sciences from Plymouth University (UK).
Erin has been an active scientist on board a research vessel, presented at an international conference and is actively working on publications at the interdisciplinary level between the fields of computer science and marine ecology. We are very excited to have Erin on board as a focus on generating the best data for our users, and ensuring that the data collected is utilised in the best ways possible.
A few words from Erin: “My passion is for driving AI technologies into marine and terrestrial sectors for protection, management and carbon reduction/offsetting. My previous experience is mainly focused on imagery analysis using the field of Computer Vision, Deep Learning and remote sensing in order to handle large image and video datasets. Additionally, previous work has led me to the development and programming of real-time pipelines on cameras mounted on observational platforms. The collection, interpretation and visualisation of industry-specific data in this manner can lead to faster implementation of management and mitigation across a plethora of other industries.”
Josh has joined as our Mechanical Engineer having graduated last week (congratulations Josh!) from University of Portsmouth with a first class (Hons) master’s degree in mechanical engineering. He is bringing significant CAD and analysis experience to our hardware designs, and will be crucial in ensuring our solutions are robust and providing reliable services to our users.
At university, Josh has worked on various design and analysis projects, one of which included designing part of a robotic arm for a marine vessel and a scale model of the robotic arm.
A few words from Josh: “I am very excited to be joining the JET team and I know that we will be able to take on any design challenges that come our way.”
