  • Field of Study: Ocean Engineering
  • Descriptor: Innovative, Creative, and Thoughtful


Jason Noel is a PhD candidate studying Ocean Engineering in Dr. Brennan Phillips’ Undersea Robotics and Imaging Lab. Continuing the research he started in his undergraduate career at URI, he is working towards the democratization of easy-to-use blue tech, developing simple platforms to perform coastal and deep-sea observation and sensing. As his research progresses, he is hoping to transition his technology to perform non-invasive biological monitoring of elasmobranchs and large pelagic and deep-sea fish. He is excited to be joining the Coastal Institute as an Emerging Coastal Leader and to work alongside the Senior Fellows and their partners throughout the state of Rhode Island.
