James J Roper

I am interested in population dynamics of terrestrial vertebrates. To understand these dynamics, I use a combination of field data (usually with birds) and simulations. I am particularly interested in life histories of tropical and subtropical birds.

Hauke Smidt

Personal Chair Complex Microbial Ecosystems and head of the Microbial Ecology Group at the Laboratory of Microbiology of Wageningen University, the Netherlands & guest Professor at Nanjing Agricultural University, Nanjing, China.

Dan Stowell

EPSRC Research Fellowship in "Machine listening for soundscapes with multiple birds". Specialist in machine learning for audio: birdsong, music, everyday sound, natural sound.

Scott Veirs

Oceanographer and bioacoustician facilitating the recovery of endangered regional icons of the Pacific Northwest (U.S.), particularly southern resident killer whales and Pacific salmon. I helped design and was the first major in the Earth Systems program at Stanford University, then received a M.S. and PhD in Oceanography at the University of Washington. In 2003 I founded Beam Reach and taught ~50 undergraduates and recent graduates to ask and answer their own marine field science questions from 2005-2012. During the same period I helped create the Salish Sea Hydrophone Network -- orcasound.net -- which I continue to administer.
