CSA Ocean Sciences is happy to welcome Dr. Michele Halvorsen to the science staff as the Ocean Sound and Marine Mammals Business Line Manager. Michele's areas of expertise include marine life and biotechnology; environmental acoustic ecology; and effects of intense anthropogenic sounds such as sonar, pile driving, seismic, noise, behavior, fish fitness/physiology, bioacoustics, and acoustic monitoring systems.
Michele earned her undergraduate degree in Zoology from Southern Illinois University and her Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she received training in neurophysiology of the auditory system of mammals and fish and in neuroethology.
Along with colleagues Drs. Woodley and Carlson, Michele helped develop a Fish Index of Trauma (FIT) model that maps the exposure sound metrics with the fish's biological responses. Recently relocated from Washington state where she was a program manager at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Sequim, Michele is getting settled in Palm City, FL.
