I have been editing sound since 2013, and began recording in 2017.  My area of expertise is nature sound library production.  I am trained in acoustic data analysis, including species identification.  I also love recording music in natural spaces!

Laura Giannone


For my capstone research I traveled to Sarawak, Borneo to work with an international team surveying bird populations in peat swamp forest and acacia plantation.  I designed acoustic surveys and processed acoustic data with a semi-automated workflow.  Read more about Bornean Bird Conservation

I am a field technician and data analyst for Quiet Parks International.

As an undergraduate I assisted Research Scientist Lauren Kuehne  with acoustic device testing (see photo on left), data analysis, and community outreach.  I am passionate about documenting the unique soundscape of the Olympic Peninsula, WA, especially as the acoustic ecology changes with further encroachment.
