Current Research Interests

Dr. Miksis-Olds' research employs acoustic methodologies to answer biological questions in both the marine and terrestrial environments.  Her primary interests include animal behavior and communication, the effect of anthropogenic activities on animals and their environment, and the development of technology to observe animals in their natural environment.  Aspects of acoustics, biology, oceanography, ecology, and engineering are combined to create the interdisciplinary approach  necessary to extend the study of animals in their natural environment beyond where it is today.
