  • Development of biomarker technology to assess the physiological response to offshore wind power systems and to conduct long-term health monitoring
  • Tagging and tracking of seals and sea turtles in relation to offshore wind development and operation
  • Furthering the development of non-invasive sample collection for health monitoring
  • Investigating the utility of environmental DNA (eDNA), such as through water samples, to detect the presence of sea turtles and seals.
