A presentation from Northeastern’s Ocean Acoustics and Ecosystem Sensing lab. Professor Ratilal gave discusses how her lab uses acoustics to track elusive and often hidden marine wildlife. From tracking massive schools of fish on the east coast, to monitoring whales in Norway, the lab is using cutting edge acoustic waveguide and microphone array design to contribute to marine science.
Purnima Ratilal-Makris, PhD, received her doctorate in acoustics at MIT and currently leads a lab at Northeastern focusing on acoustic remote sensing in the ocean. Her expertise include acoustics, ultrasound sensing, image processing, and temporal and spatial signal processing.
