Have you seen Beneath the Waves director Erica Staaterman’s TEDx talk?


Erica is fascinated with the voices of our planet’s creatures and habitats, which form the basis of underwater soundscapes. While most marine scientists and enthusiasts focus on their visual and tactile senses, Erica explores auditory scenes in the ocean: the clicks, chirps, and growls of a world that was once thought to be silent. As a PhD Candidate at University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School for Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, her dissertation examines the role of coral reef soundscapes in larval fish navigation. Previously, Erica has studied acoustic communication in shrimp and lobsters, and hopes to broaden her research to other animals after her PhD.
