Larissa Sayuri Moreira Sugai

Extension Associate

I’m an ecologist enthusiastic about the prospects of acoustic monitoring to understand the multi-level nature of biodiversity changes in space and time. My research interest has been in signaling assemblages in South America (particularly frogs).

At the Cornell Lab, I work in the K. Lisa Yang Center for Conservation Bioacoustics as a capacity building team member. Our mission is to promote the use of acoustic monitoring in ecology and conservation research for diverse audiences.
