Canadian provider of instrumentation for ocean turbulence measurements Rockland Scientific has appointed Justine McMillan as Staff Scientist.

Rockland said McMillan will act as scientific and technical liaison between its customer base and the company’s research and development, and customer service teams.

McMillan recently completed her doctoral degree at Dalhousie University, focusing on the measurement of turbulent flows in energetic tidal channels.

The work conducted by McMillan has been instrumental in the ongoing tidal energy resource assessments, according to Rockland.

McMillan said: “I’ve used Rockland’s instrumentation in several sea-going campaigns for my research work at Dalhousie, which allowed me to develop extensive experience the processing, analysis and interpretation of turbulence data sets.

“My experience enables me to support Rockland’s customers, not only helping them get their data, but also assisting them in turning the data into research-paper-ready information.”
