The primary research expertise for the lab lies in the area of marine bioacoustics. We focus on the use of new, non-lethal acoustic methods and technologies to promote a better understanding of highly exploited and endangered marine species. We are interested in noise and the effects human activities have on marine organisms and we use acoustic tools to answer population-level questions relevant to the management of animal resources. Along those lines, the effects that sound has on those animals, particularly anthropogenic sounds, are of great importance.
