Dr. Dana Yoerger

Host Researcher, Marine Engineering (specializing in navigation and robotics)

Dr. Dana Yoerger, an associate scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, makes underwater robots and performs engineering research to improve the performance of the robots. His work focuses on underwater vehicles that are able to take detailed scientific measurements and samples. During this year's JASON Project in Florida, he will make extremely precise images and maps that scientists can use to understand the ocean floor. Yoerger likes to share the excitement of his job with his family as much as possible. When his team is testing new robots, he sometimes lets his children test drive them.
