Dr. Širović obtained her PhD in Oceanography from the University of California San Diego, and has held faculty and researcher positions at Alaska Pacific University and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. This summer she is switching her associate professor position from Texas A&M University at Galveston to the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. Dr. Širović is interested in long term trends in ambient sound and the impact of sound on marine animals, as well as the development and use of new, non-lethal acoustic methods and technologies to promote a better understanding of highly exploited and endangered marine species. She has collected underwater acoustic recordings worldwide, from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific Ocean, and from Antarctica to the Mediterranean.
