What I do or What have I been up to for the last few years that might be of even ever so slightly interest for the brilliant minds of CREEMinals?
Speaker: Tiago Marques (CREEM)
Over the last few years I have been working full time for CREEM, yet I have not spent much time in St Andrews. My last CREEM seminar was delivered in 2004 (!), so it was about time I did one. The pitch will be informal and the main goal of the talk is to try to shorten the virtual distance between Lisboa and St Andrews, looking for possible collaborations with other CREEM and St Andrews researchers.
The focus will be on key projects that have kept me busy. I will start by skimming over DECAF and its sons, namely the IDEA courses for US Navy folks and a book on estimating animal density from passive acoustics. A brief mention to the passive acoustic cetacean monitoring stemming from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill will follow. Then I’ll move on to LATTE, looking into the effect of sonar on marine mammals, using beaked whales at AUTEC as a case study. I’ll mention the dose response work already published and also the details behind the agent based simulation approach we are currently (still!) actively developing. I’ll briefly mention the work on 3D track reconstruction from DTAG data (while leaving the juicy bits to Christophe Lapanche’s seminar the following day).
To wrap up, a number of past and future pet projects that I am involved with will be quickly presented, and I’ll finish up with the details for an invitation to all to come and visit me in Lisboa!
