Dr. Peter Etnoyer has expertise in octocoral systematics, deep benthic survey techniques, and geographic information systems (GIS). He holds a Bachelor's and Master's degree from Duke University, and a PhD from Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi. His master's research used GIS to design marine protected area networks in the Philippines and Caribbean.
