Kathleen Vigness-Raposa, Ph.D., is the Vice President of Environmental Programs and a Senior Scientist at Marine Acoustics, Inc., where she oversees the strategic planning and program management of projects and personnel. She has performed analytical and experimental modeling to predict and quantify sound exposures of marine mammals using MAI’s Acoustic Integration Model©, the outputs of which she weaves into environmental impact documentation addressing the effects of underwater sounds from acoustic systems, aircraft, and explosive weapon. She has also conducted biological research and analyses to derive distribution and abundance estimates for acoustic experiments around the world. Dr. Vigness-Raposa is the co-PI of the “Discovery of Sound in the Sea” project, which won the ASA Science Writing Award for Media other than Articles in 2007
