Among this year’s E.O. Wilson Award recipients is Dr. Andone Lavery of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Her Wilson award is given for “contributions to acoustical oceanography and applications for marine biodiversity.”
Dr. Lavery will be available for an interactive discussion session on Friday, September 21, 2018, from 2:10-3:00PM in Roberts Hall 210. All interested students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend this informal session. She can share insights into her research, as well as advice about developing a career as a successful and influential research scientist.
Dr. Lavery has helped pioneer new ways of using sound waves to map the presence of a wide range of ocean organisms, including zooplankton and large fish. She is a senior scientist at Woods Hole, the world’s largest nonprofit center for ocean research and education. She holds degrees from Cambridge University and Cornell University, and is an Associate Editor of the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America.
