Shannon Hoy is a Physical Scientist with the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research (OER). She assists in both field operations aboard the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer as a mapping coordinator and with shoreside responsibilities, such as mission planning and data archiving.

Shannon has a multidisciplinary background, having received a Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology from the College of Charleston, and having worked with the Submarine Geohazards Group at the U.S. Geological Survey. She will soon complete her master’s degree in Ocean Mapping at the University of New Hampshire’s Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping (CCOM). Shannon began mapping the seafloor in 2009 and has since participated with numerous expeditions. Prior to her position with OER, the majority of her time at sea was spent as a mapping lead for University of Bristol’s (UK) palaeoceanographic group, where she implemented multiple habitat mapping technologies and methodologies to search for deep-sea corals.
