Analysis and visualization of whale telemetry data
Characterization of critical habitat for large whales
Quantification of long-distance migration and navigation in whales
I work in the Whale Telemetry Group at the Marine Mammal Institute. Our field of study is cetacean ecology, using telemetry as a tool to improve our understanding of foraging ecology, migration and movement patterns, species-habitat associations, population dynamics, and ecosystem and trophic interactions. Since these questions have relevance for the management and conservation of whale populations, we also address interactions with human activities and the effects of anthropogenic factors as part of our research. Because cetaceans migrate over large ranges that cross political boundaries, our program has a strong international emphasis.
