Photo of Dr. Elizabeth HendersonDr. Henderson has been a Bioacoustic Scientist with the Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific (NIWC Pacific) for the last eight years, where she currently supervises the Whale Acoustic Reconnaissance Program. She has extensive experience conducting research on the vocalizations and behavior of marine mammals for over twenty years, including overseeing multiple behavioral and acoustic monitoring projects. Recent work has included modeling the behavior and habitat use of localized and tracked odontocetes and mysticetes on a Navy range, and assessing the behavior of satellite tagged humpback whales. Ongoing research projects include evaluating baseline behavior and densities of localized or tracked beaked, minke, and humpback whales on a Navy range and their behavioral responses to Navy activity. She is a co-editor of the Aquatic Mammals Journal, serves on the NIWC Pacific IACUC committee, and is an alternate on the ASA standards committee. Dr. Henderson has a B.A. in PsychoBiology, a M.Sc. in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology, and a PhD in Biological Oceanography from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, where she also served as a Postdoctoral Researcher.
