Acoustic Tag Technologies and Applications

Friday May 7, 2021

Dr. Susan Parks, Associate Professor of Biology, Syracuse University

Dr. Susan Parks is an Associate Professor of Biology at Syracuse University. She has been involved in animal bioacoustics research for over 25 years. She earned her B.A. in Biology from Cornell University and her Ph.D. in Biological Oceanography in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Joint Program in Oceanography. Her research focuses on the ecology and evolution of acoustic signaling. Dr. Parks’ research topics span the fields of behavioral ecology, bioacoustics, biological oceanography, and conservation biology. Her current projects include studies of marine and terrestrial animals ranging from observational studies characterizing the acoustic behavior of species to experimental studies investigating behavioral functions of sounds and the impacts of noise on communication.

 

Dr. Jeff Kneebone, Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life at the New England Aquarium

Dr. Jeff Kneebone joined the Anderson Cabot Center as a post-doctoral researcher in 2015. His research focuses on numerous aspects of fish biology, ecology, and physiology, and aims to generate novel data that can directly inform marine policy and fishery stock assessments. Through his collaborations with fishery management entities and members of the commercial and recreational fishing community, Jeff hopes to foster improved fishery management and sustainability, particularly for imperiled and data poor species. He is also interested in the physical and physiological stressors experienced by fish during capture in commercial and recreational fisheries, and the development of recommendations that can reduce incidental fishing mortality. Jeff’s current research focuses on a wide variety of marine fishes, including sand tiger sharks, common thresher sharks, black sea bass, yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, and thorny skate.
