Marine Mammal Behavior and Communication


Laela Sayigh

My research interests focus on behavior and communication in cetaceans (whales and dolphins), and how humans impact these aspects of cetacean societies. Potential student projects can be either basic or applied, and include: (1) Analysis of tag data to study how bottlenose dolphins and pilot whales use communicative signals to mediate social interactions; (2) Analysis of passive acoustic monitoring data toward developing an acoustic mass stranding alert system.
