Ms Sara Lise Underhay is a postgraduate research student within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.

BSc. and MSc. in Earth Science from McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada

I am a Canadian with a BSc. and an MSc. in Earth Science, specializing in Geophysics. After finishing my masters, I worked for 7 years both in Canada and in the UK. I’ve worked for the mining, oil & gas and UneXploded Ordnance industries and have had a number of jobs including field work for airborne surveys, data processing, and software training.

Research interests

Research project: Machine Learning for Optimal Unexploded Ordnance Mitigation.

My aim is to develop a method for distinguishing objects buried below the seabed as either dangerous munitions or other non-threatening objects. To achieve this, I will be combining two types of geophysical data, magnetics and high resolution 3D seismic using machine learning.
