Past Graduate Students
Daniel Gottlieb, PhD
Dr. Gottlieb is now a post doc for Kris Coleman at the Oregon National Primate Research Center, where he is researching non-human primate welfare and optimal management strategies for captive rhesus macaques.
Sean Hanser, PhD
Dr. Hanser is now the team lead for the Marine Natural Resources Group at Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Pacific. He and his team monitor and evaluate marine resources such as marine mammals, sea turtles, and coral reefs on installations and ranges throughout the Pacific Ocean for the Department of Defense. He specializes in marine bioacoustics and population ecology.
Stacie Hooper, Ph.D
Dr. Hooper is now a post doc in the Patricelli Lab at UC Davis working on modifying a software modeling package called NMSim, which builds a spatially explicit simulation of how noise spreads over the surrounding terrain, to estimate and map the "acoustic footprint" of energy exploration noise to determine what role noise has played in the decline of sage grouse throughout their range. The model output will also be used to calculate the maximum noise tolerance threshold for sage-grouse, which is critical to developing effective noise exposure regulations.
