Dr Oberst works as Associate Professor at the Centre for Audio, Acoustics and Vibration (CAAV) at the University of Technology, Sydney, and is head of the Biogenic dynamics group conducting research in bioacoustics, complex dynamics, and acoustic/biogenic (meta-)materials. His research is applied to the eusociality of insects, (primarily termites, but also bees) and the structures they build, extending to their vibro-acoustic communication signals following the noise control engineering principle. Nonlinear time series analysis or methods used in engineering and physics are key elements of his research applied to the life sciences, especially behavioural ecology.
