Lisa joined the OSI team in December 2012. She has 13 years of experience in passive acoustic monitoring in marine ecosystems. Her doctoral dissertation at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) at University of California, San Diego investigated habitat use of critically endangered North Pacific right whales (Eubalaena japonica) in the Bering Sea using long-term moored acoustic recorders. Lisa has also worked on acoustic research projects in the Arctic, southern California, Hawaii and other Pacific islands, and has spent months at sea on research vessels. She has been heavily involved in education and outreach as well. While in San Diego, she coordinated and led after-school programs and field trips for K-12 students, and for the past 3 years Lisa has taught Marine Mammal Biology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
