Marta Bolgan, PhD

I am an Italian Marine Biologist holding a Ph.D. in Aquatic Science, more than 3 years of postdoctoral experience and a sincere passion and solid skills in science communication.

My area of scientific interest and spectrum of research expertise reflect the intrinsic multidisciplinary nature of the fish bioacoustics field.

My investigations span from the behavioural significance of fish acoustic communication to soundscape analysis oriented to the monitoring of fish communities in an ecological perspective. I have recently started to integrate knowledge about the diversity of fish sounds and of morphological adaptations to the characterisation of fish vocal communities dynamics at different geographical, environmental and temporal scales and to investigate the effect of anthropogenic stressors (such as man-made underwater noise) on fish fitness and reproductive success.
