Project Description

Dr. Michel earned B.S. degrees in biology and chemical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She then earned an M.S. in Ocean Engineering from MIT and a Ph.D. in Mechanical and Oceanographic Engineering from the MIT-Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) Joint Program. After receiving her Ph.D., Dr. Michel was a post-doctoral fellow and then an associate research scholar at the Center for Mid-Infrared Technologies for Health and the Environment at Princeton University. She returned to WHOI as an assistant scientist in applied ocean physics and engineering. Dr. Michel’s research focus is on advancing environmental observation through the development and deployment of novel optical sensors for measurement of key chemical species. Dr. Michel designs, builds, and deploys advanced laser-based chemical sensors that are capable of measuring trace concentrations in gaseous and aqueous environments in locations ranging from the deep sea to Arctic environments, using remotely operated vehicles.
