Alex De Robertis
Alex De Robertis is a fisheries biologist at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center's Midwater and Conservation Engineering program. He works in a group that conducts acoustic-trawl surveys of fish in Alaska to help manage commercial fisheries and research to improve these surveys. It is challenging and interesting work, focused on improving acoustic, optical, and trawl sampling methods. Alex earned a B.S. in Biology from UCLA and a PhD from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He has been fortunate to interact with interesting colleagues and work with a variety of sampling platforms ranging from inflatable boats to icebreakers, buoys, ocean-going robots, and moorings on the seafloor.
