Cliff is an engineer with over 30 years of experience in developing technologies for working on and under the ocean. A consistent theme of his work has been the introduction of innovative ways of tapping the productivity of the ocean in more sustainable ways. Much of this career has been as a research engineer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology working together with industry on problems confronting the fishing and aquaculture industries.

He sees opportunities for growth within these traditional industries, particularly through the application of renewable energy technologies, robotics, and a general abandonment of methods developed under the false assumptions of unlimited fish and an endless supply of fossil fuel. The emergence of ocean-based renewable energy is the key to developing sustainable ocean industries and prosperous coastal communities. Cliff’s work has been published extensively in peer-reviewed journals and covered frequently in industry and popular media.
