Cachalot Presentation to Duke Trustees

Traveling often means that you miss out on things at home. I really miss my wife and kids while out on research trips, and besides missing my family while on this last set of travels I also missed out on an opportunity to meet with the Duke Board of Trustees to brief them on Cachalot. However, thanks to Tracy Futhey, Vice President for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer at Duke, I was able to be in two places at once and deliver a presentation to the Duke BOT while bobbing around in the Drake Passage with our adventurous Duke Alumni. Tracy was kind enough to bring in two videographers to shoot a short “commercial” for the app to present to the Board while I was leading the Alumni trip. The video includes some demos of the content, provides some details on the latest developments in the app and also includes a brief interview with Sharon Chan, a student who uses the app in my Marine Megafauna class this semester. The video is embedded below, check it out!
