University Fellow, Dr Marina Duarte, played a key role at the recent International Bioacoustics Congress, which was held at Hokkaido University in Japan.

The event brought together 240 experts from around the world, serving as an important meeting point to discuss the latest trends and findings in the field of Bioacoustics. Marina presented a talk on ‘Acoustic Monitoring of Black-Tufted Marmosets in a Tropical Forest Disturbed by Mining Noise’.

Marina’s research as a University Fellow focuses on environmental pollution, specifically noise pollution effects on wildlife. Over the coming years, Marina intends to set up and lead a research group in Bioacoustics focused on analysing and understanding noise pollution effects on biodiversity using innovative methods.

Marina said: “It was a unique opportunity to attend the congress, which was incredibly enriching, providing valuable opportunities for networking and learning from colleagues and industry experts.”
