Hello!  I'm Jordan and for the past three years, I've put everything aside to learn more about the marine mammals that reside around the Hawaiian Islands.  My preferred method of observation is with a UAV (drone).  I'm convinced that these new tools will unlock all sorts of interesting data and further existing research.  My secondary objective is to present what I learn to others through social media.  This combination of science and art has been a difficult formula to figure out but to me, it's worth it to inspire a new generation of scientists and explorers.  I'm currently working with Cascadia Research Collective as a research assistant and UAV pilot.  Read about our latest field project here: http://www.cascadiaresearch.org/hawaiian-cetacean-studies/April2018.
