Dr. Dominik Nachtsheim, Institute for Terrestrial and Aquatic Wildlife Research at the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Foundation, Germany.
Dr. Dominik Nachtsheim is a post-doctoral researcher in the Institute for Terrestrial and Aquatic Wildlife Research (ITAW) at the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Foundation, in Germany. He has received a B.Sc. in Biology from the University of Bremen, an International M.Sc. in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation from a consortium of six European universities, and a doctoral degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Foundation. He has a general interest in marine mammal ecology, with a focus on studying the behaviour, distribution and abundance of pinnipeds and cetaceans applying a range of different methods. Furthermore, he is particularly interested in the effects of anthropogenic activities, such as underwater noise, on marine mammals and what consequences this may have on an individual level, but also for the population. Currently, Dominik is investigating the impacts of shipping noise on harbour seals in the framework of the EU Horizon2020 project SATURN.
Dr. Charlotte Findlay, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Marine Bioacoustics Lab at Aarhus University, Denmark.
Dr. Charlotte Findlay is currently a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Marine Bioacoustics Lab at Aarhus University in Denmark. Her research focuses on understanding the effects of natural and human made underwater noise on marine mammals and soundscapes. Charlotte was previously a Postdoc in Aarhus within the European Union SATURN Project (Developing solutions to underwater radiated noise) looking at shipping noise impacts to marine mammals. She completed her PhD at the Scottish Association for Marine Science and University of the Highlands and Islands on the effects of Acoustic Deterrent Device noise from aquaculture on harbour porpoise and harbour seal behaviour and hearing.
