My name’s Hansen. I’m a marine scientist and a sailor. I work as a research scientist at the Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life at the New England Aquarium. Much of our work is dedicated to improving conservation outcomes for the critically endangered North Atlantic right whale. I use this website to highlight some of the papers, presentations, and projects I’ve been working on. Sometimes I also write posts about things I think are worth remembering or sharing. If you’re interested in any of this stuff, please don’t hesitate to get in touch! I can be reached by email at
