I became interested in bioacoustics as an undergraduate after reading about Katy Payne’s pioneering research on elephant infrasound and learning about the African elephant poaching crisis. That led me to attend the Sound Analysis Workshop hosted in 2007, where my interest in bioacoustics grew. I began working at the Cornell Lab’s  K. Lisa Yang Center for Conservation Bioacoustics (CCB) in 2008, where I use passive acoustic technology in the context of ecology and conservation. Most of my current research is focused on baleen whale spatio-temporal acoustic occurrence in anthropogenically active marine environments in order to better understand habitat use and inform management decisions. In much of my research, I measure ambient noise levels to characterize noise conditions of marine habitats before, during, and after invasive industrial operations.
