My research has been mainly involved with marine mammal hearing abilities, underwater calls and the masking effects of natural and anthropomorphic underwater noise. I completed a B. Sc. (Agr) and M. Sc. degree at the University of Guelph in Canada and my doctorate at Aarhus University in Denmark. After a short post-doc at the University of Guelph, I joined the University of New Brunswick and retired after 37 years. My field work has been on sea ice off the coast of Greenland, in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and in Eastern Antarctica.

Underwater vocalizations of polar seals, emphasizing ways in which seals can avoid having their calls masked by conspecifics or industrial noises.
