Underlying each of my acoustic ecology projects is a strong commitment to (1) disseminating information to the scientific community, (2) engaging the public to participate in and learn about science, and (3) invite students at all stages of their education to use acoustic ecology as a platform with which to investigate the natural world.
To this end I participate whenever possible in scientific conferences and public lectures; I also welcome opportunities to talk about my work on radio, television, or through online media. As part of a proven mandate to create opportunities for students in research I have also developed multiple internship and mentorship programs through Oregon State University and the Alaska Whale Foundation. Through these programs I have personally supervised 19 students participating in applied field research in Southeast Alaska. For more information on internship opportunities or to learn more about students who have worked with me in the past please visit the Internships Page or the Rapunzel Project Page.
