Andone Lavery

Associate Scientist with Tenure, Applied Ocean Physics and Engineering, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Since 2002, Dr. Andone C. Lavery has been a Member of the Scientific Staff, Department of Applied Ocean Physics and Engineering, at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI). Her research interests include high-frequency acoustic scattering and propagation in discrete and random media, developing physics-based acoustic scattering models for marine organisms and small scale fluid processes, performing laboratory measurements for validating scattering models, developing instruments and signal processing methods for ocean measurements of scattering from biologics and physical processes. Most recently, her research has focused on the acoustic characterization of organisms in the ocean Twilight Zone, the characterization and quantification buoyant estuarine plumes, and the adaptation of acoustic sensors to a variety of emerging ocean sensing platforms.

Andone C. Lavery received the B.A. degree in mathematics from Cambridge University, Cambridge, U.K., in 1991 and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in physics from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, in 1995 and 1999, respectively. She was a Postdoctoral Scholar from 1999 to 2001 with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), Woods Hole, MA, and an Office of Naval Research (ONR) Ocean Acoustics Postdoctoral Fellow from 2001 to 2002, also at WHOI.

Dr. Lavery is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America, and a member of The Oceanography Society, IEEE and the American Physical Society. She has served for six years as Associate Editor for the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America Express Letters and was awarded the Acoustical Society of America Medwin Prize in Acoustical Oceanography in 2014. Andone was selected by the Oceanography Society as the 2017 recipient of the Walter Munk Award for Distinguished Research in Oceanography Related to Sound and the Sea.
