Humpback whales, climate change and prey availability
In the face of climate change and shifting prey availability, this projects aims to quantify the bioenergetic demands of humpback whale migration between Alaska and Hawaii.
Population biology of Hawaiian spinner dolphins
This project aims to assess the abundance and distribution of Hawaiian spinner dolphins in the main Hawaiian Islands and collect detailed population and life-history data on the dolphins of Oʻahu's Waiʻanae coast.
Conservation biology of gray whales on their breeding grounds
This project aims to understand the behavior and bioenergetics of gray whales on their breeding ground in San Ignacio Lagoon, Mexico.
In-situ calibration of UAV photogrammetry
This project aims to develop a method to rapidly assess delphinid population age structure. This will ultimately provide an assessment of population growth and survival rates, and early insight into whether there may be cause for concern for specific populations.
False killer whales, short-finned pilot whales and anthropogenic sound
This project aims to assess anthropogenic noise in the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary and Papahanaumokuakea National Monument, short-finned pilot whale and false killer whale spatial and temporal variability and potential effects of anthropogenic noise on acoustic behavior.
