Sly Lee is a Marine Ecologist and Toxicologist that has been exploring the use of technology to document coral and the marine ecosystem. Currently Sly is using photos of corals to generate 3D models using Autodesk Recap Photo to document coral and examine changes over time.
Sly is currently based on the island of Molokai Hawaii but spending much of February in Guam, Saipan, and Palau. I will be doing some underwater research work with Sly in May and am really looking forward to it.
