Bellingham earned his PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he was founder and manager of the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Laboratory.  He was also co-founder of Bluefin Robotics in 1997, a Massachusetts-based company that develops, builds and operates autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs).  Bluefin was later acquired by Battelle.
