Aaron Thode is a Full Research Scientist at the Marine Physical Laboratory, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, CA. After receiving his PhD in oceanography from Scripps, he served as a postdoctoral scholar in ocean engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology before rejoining Scripps as an Assistant Research Scientist. In 2021 he was promoted to Full Research Scientist.

Thode’s recent research has covered the following topics: (1) demonstrating automated detection classification and tracking methods of migrating whales in the Beaufort Sea and Hawaii, in order to determine how animals adjust their calling rate and source level in response to natural and human-generated noise; and (2) using vector sensors to map spatial distributions of bioacoustic activity on coral reefs.
