Jennifer Amaral is a lead scientist and
engineer with Marine Acoustics, Inc. (Middletown, RI), where she implements modeling strate- gies and develops acoustic assessment tools to evaluate
sound exposure on marine life for environmental impact assessments. She earned her BS and MS degrees in ocean engineering from the University of Rhode Island (URI; Nar- ragansett) and is currently studying toward her PhD in the same discipline. Her doctoral research focuses on the acous- tic propagation and characterization of pile-driving sounds and marine mammal vocalizations.
