Ph.D. student Moritz Schmid received the John W. Davies Memorial Award from the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers. The $3000 prize recognizes his original work on underwater imaging of plankton in the Arctic and the development of a machine-learning model capable of identifying species on images. Combining these technologies will provide an unprecedented insight into the Arctic ecosystem. Moritz Schmid"s project "LOKI underwater imaging system for the detection of zooplankton specimen" is supervised by Louis Fortier and Marcel Babin.
