Tianhang Hou was a Research Associate with the University of New Brunswick Ocean Mapping for six years before coming to UNH.
He has significant experience with the UNB/OMG multibeam processing tools and has taken part in several offshore surveys. In addition to his work as a research associate Mr. Hou has also begun a Ph.D in which he is looking at the application of wavelets for artifact removal and seafloor classification in multibeam sonar records.
He is also exploring several approaches for automated cleaning of multibeam sonar data as well as developing algorithms for determining the "foot of the slope" for Law of the Sea issues.
