Steve Sempier has joined the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Sea Grant regional coordinator for a Gulf of Mexico marine research planning program.
Sempier will review federal and state agency research plans and seek input from constituents from across the Gulf of Mexico. This information will lead to a comprehensive strategic and implementation plan for marine research. The Gulf-wide plan will identify top-priority areas and opportunities for regional research collaboration. Sempier is a resident of Starkville, Miss., and his office is located at Mississippi State University. He can be reached at (662) 325-5509 or email@example.com.
