About the Project

There is a clear need for technology to detect the presence of marine mammals, especially dolphins, porpoises and whales in order to support marine ecology studies and to mitigate the impact of offshore construction work. This project will investigate computationally efficient acoustic signal/image processing techniques for detecting echo-location clicks and calls (whistles) recorded on hydrophones. The aim of the work is to develop algorithms that may be applied on low cost devices, with real-time wireless communication, that can operate for long periods with limited battery energy.

Newcastle University is committed to being a fully inclusive Global University which actively recruits, supports and retains colleagues from all sectors of society.  We value diversity as well as celebrate, support and thrive on the contributions of all our employees and the communities they represent.  We are proud to be an equal opportunities employer and encourage applications from everybody, regardless of race, sex, ethnicity, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, age, disability, gender identity, marital status/civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, as well as being open to flexible working practices.
