Dr. Jules S. Jaffe is a Research Oceanographer in the Marine Physical Lab at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD, in La Jolla, CA where he has been since 1988. Prior to this he was an Assistant ('84') and Associate ('88') Scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Dr. Jaffe holds an undergraduate degree from SUNY Buffalo in physics, a Masters Degree in Biomedical Information Science from The Georgia Institute of Technology, and a Ph. D. from UC Berkeley in BIophysics. After graduating from Cal, Dr. Jaffe spent several years in Silicon Valley as an Image Processing Consultant. Dr. Jaffe's research program is mainly concerned with developing underwater instruments in order to infer the biological and physical properties of the upper ocean. Dr. Jaffe is a recipient of a National Science Foundation Creativity Award (1992), is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America (2002), was an H. Burr Steinbach Visiting Scholar at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (2003) and a Visiting Miller Professor at UC Berkeley (2006). He is currently an Associate Editor for both the IEEE Journal of Ocean Engineering and Limnology and Oceanography Methods. He has published over 100 articles in journals, book chapters, and conference proceedings. Dr. Jaffe has presented tutorials on underwater optical and acoustic imaging at several international conferences (IEEE, Acoustic Soc. Am.). Dr. Jaffe would be happy to present several different types of talks to organizations: (1) Public outreach talks to non-specialists. (2) Talks to both undergraduates and graduate organizations. (3) True research seminars. (4) Tutorials. Subjects can range from advanced underwater optical imaging for both bottom and midwater observation, the use of acoustic multi-beam systems for tracking small animals, the design and operational goals for swarms of miniature vehicles, and the use of diffraction tomography for inferring size, shape, and perhaps the taxa of marine organisms that range from microbes to fish.
