My PhD research focused on characterizing sound production by marine animals, particularly on coral reefs. I sought to identify links between the sounds produced in a given habitat and the species assemblages present there - in other words, to use biological sound production as a proxy for animal diversity. More details about my research projects can be found here.

My PhD supervisor was Dr. Aran Mooney.
