Research Areas

My primary research field is in marine bioacoustics, ecology, biology, and evolution of marine mammals. I work on sound and biosonar production, hearing and noise effect, visual and passive acoustic survey, and conservation of aquatic mammals. My research subjects include but not limited to whales, dolphins, porpoises, and fish. The researches involve noise and high-frequency bio-sound recording and analysis, ecological surveys, auditory evoked potential recording by using ABR technology, underwater bio-sound detection.
