Robyn Walker

Robyn Walker has always been passionate about marine biology and the ocean, and has spent her life trying to learn as much as she can about the marine environment. She graduated with a Combined Honours degree in Journalism and Biology from Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario in 2007, and earned a Masters of Coastal Environmental Management from Duke University in 2010, focusing on marine mammal conservation. For the last eight years Robyn has been gaining experience in many different areas of marine research and conservation, and has spent her time studying humpback whales and North Atlantic right whales off the coast of Massachusetts, educating youths about marine issues in the Bay of Fundy, studying Northern Resident killer whales in Johnstone Strait, British Columbia, and running a marine mammal rescue organization in northern California, amongst other things. After taking Bio-Waves, Inc.'s  Passive Acoustic Technician Training Course in February 2012, Robyn became more interested in bio-acoustics and began volunteering with Bio-Waves' biologist Jeff  Jacobsen building hydrophones. In July 2013, Robyn started working with Bio-Waves as a data analyst and technical writer, and has since been involved with analyzing data for several projects, including data from autonomous recorders, and has worked to develop Bio-Waves’ internship program. In the future, she looks forward to continuing to learn all she can about bio-acoustics, and applying her varied experience in both biology and communications in new and different ways.
