The overall aim of this lab is to understand the behavior and ecology of marine mammals, and their role in maintaining healthy ecosystems. A wide network of collaborators, undergraduates, and graduate students are involved in projects related to this theme. Click on the links to the right to learn more about current research and students. 

If you are a prospective student, please read through the project descriptions on this website. Also review the admission requirements to the UAF College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences:  https://www.uaf.edu/sfos/academics/apply/. I do not currently have funding to support additional students. However, highly talented students may be able to obtain their own funding so please contact me if you are interested.

Synchrony

Yesterday, it was once again too windy and swelly to go out on our research boat, so Adrian and I went out on the Dolphin Encounter boat, Lissodelphis.

The large pod was nowhere in sight, but we did manage to find a pair of dolphins that was very friendly with the boat and the swimmers. They were later joined by a group of 5 dolphins, including 1 mom-calf pair. It was neat to see the dolphins surfing in the waves, but the seas were so rough that it was hard to keep track of the dolphins unless they were very close to the boat.  The original pair stayed close together and often swam side-by-side in synchrony.
