My research interests are broadly in the field of active acoustic sensing with specific intersections with acoustical oceanography and neuroscience. My previous research involved using spectral, temporal, and statistical features in the echoes collected by human-made sonar systems to infer information about marine organisms, such as fish and squid. Building on this experience, my current research focuses on the adaptive biosonar systems of bats and toothed whales, through which the animals adjust their echolocation signals dynamically in response to the environment and tasks. Using a combination of experimental and computational approaches, my goal is to develop a coherent understanding of the underlying neural mechanisms from auditory scene analysis to sensorimotor integration that “close the loop” between echo reception and subsequent biosonar emission.
