Looby, Audrey

PhD Student, Fisheries & Aquatic Sciences

Advisor: Charles Martin

I am a PhD student in Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences under Charlie Martin and Laura K. Reynolds. I am focusing on fish sound production and coastal soundscape ecology. My research interests include seagrass ecosystem soundscapes, the impacts of a living shorelines restoration on the intertidal soundscape, and anthropogenic noise pollution. I am also compiling a comprehensive inventory of all fish species that have been shown to produce sound. I earned my M.S. at the University of Florida, studying the effects of submerged aquatic vegetation restoration on fish habitat use. Prior to that, I worked as a research assistant at the Smithsonian Marine Station on projects in Florida and Belize and conducted research in the kelp forests around Catalina Island.
