I received a Fulbright U.S. Student grant to study soundscapes in Austria with the support of the Institute of Ecology at the University of Innsbruck for the 2015-16 school year (October 2015-July 2016). I will record and analyze soundscapes for ecological parameters and create a soundscape model that extends existing human-focused noise propagation models by showing impacts to the natural sonic environment. I hope this research will help improve noise policies and attenuation measures. I am a native of northeastern Pennsylvania, U.S.A. and grew up working on my parent’s small nursery and farm. I studied Civil and Environmental Engineering at Lafayette College and worked for an engineering firm in New York City for two years before coming to Austria.
