As part of the ongoing Research Seminars series, the Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC) will host Dr. Bryson Roberston, Oregon State University assistant professor and Co-Director of the Pacific Marine Energy Center. His presentation will take place on Thursday, Sept. 22, at 3:30 p.m.

About the talk:

“The Pacific Northwest is endowed with some of the most energetic offshore marine renewable energy resources in the world, and Oregon State University (OSU) is a globally recognized academic leader in the responsible advancement of marine renewable energy. In his talk, Dr. Robertson will provide an overview of the need to decarbonize our global and US energy sector, explain why wave energy has an important role to play in this transition, and why Oregon/OSU is ideally placed to lead this effort.”

These talks are delivered in a hybrid fashion. The event is free, and all are welcome to attend in person in the auditorium of the Gladys Valley Marine Studies Building at the HMSC (2030 S.E. Marine Science Dr).  You can also participate online. Register here to attend remotely via Zoom.
