Blending music and research

Our research group, the Center for Conservation Bioacoustics, recently hosted a “virtual visitors center” for the Lab of Ornithology. I presented a bit about my work in the Sierras, Daniela Hedwig and Bobbi Estabrook talked about the Elephant Listening Project, Isha Bopardikar talked about finless porpoises (yep, that’s a real thing), and Aaron Rice talked about snapping shrimp. What made the even really special was the host, wildlife DJ and Cornell PhD student Ben Mirin, who makes music with animal sounds!

We each briefly discuss our work and then we did live Q&A. There were about 700 live viewers, and the video has over 14,000 views! Check it out:
