Field Operations and Data Acquisition Coordinator (FO-DAC)

Caitlin Bate

Coming from a land-locked province, I developed my love of the water through many years of competitive swimming. In 2013, I moved to Halifax to attend Dalhousie and pursue my passion through studying Marine Biology. I still enjoy swimming, scuba diving and travelling in my spare time and am continually inspired to learn new things.

During my studies, field courses and research projects exposed me to a broad range of marine topics, including coral reef and tropical biology, marine mammalogy, ornithology, conservation biology and environmental impact assessment. Through Dalhousie’s co-op program, I was introduced to marine acoustics and ocean technology working as a field technician in 2017 before moving on to the Data Acquisition team the following year.
