John Hildebrand is a Distinguished Professor at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and an Adjunct Professor in the UCSD Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He has contributed to more than 180 peer-reviewed publications, on topics ranging from passive acoustic monitoring of marine mammals, to characterization of underwater noise. His recent research has focused on the use of acoustic techniques for marine mammal population census, and the effects of noise on marine mammals.
Sean Wiggins is a Project Scientist and Principal Development Engineer at Scripps Institution of Oceanography's Marine Physical Laboratory. During the past 20 years at Scripps he has designed and developed various oceanographic instruments to study marine acoustics, seismology, and seafloor heat flow. His current research interests include passive acoustic monitoring of marine mammals, ocean ambient noise, and the effects of sound on marine mammals.
Kait Frasier is an Assistant Project Scientist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. She is interested in learning how biologically and environmentally important information can be extracted from and synthesized across the increasingly large datasets generated by today's scientific observation tools. As part of passive acoustic research we collect large amounts of broadband recordings all over the world.
