Molly Martin, MPhil

Acoustician (Contractor)

Molly received a BS in Biology with a concentration in Marine Biology from the University of South Florida in 2012 and a MPhil from College of the Atlantic in 2015. Her graduate work focused on the effect of ship noise on North Atlantic right whale vocalizations in the Gulf of Maine. She then worked as a Northeast Fisheries (NEFOP) observer for A.I.S. from late 2016 to 2019. She worked together with commercial fishermen to collect bycatch and incidental take data in the groundfish, Loligo/Ilex squid, surf clam/quahog, and high volume herring fisheries. During this time, she also worked as a Protected Species Observer for A.I.S., participating in several offshore wind projects with Ørsted and Vineyard Winds. In 2019 she joined the Training and Data Quality Branch of the Fisheries Monitoring and Research Division as a Data Debriefer, where she reviewed and edited trip data submitted by observers.

She joined the passive acoustic research group as an acoustician in 2021. Her current work focuses on baleen whale acoustic occurrence in the western North Atlantic Ocean.
