Congratulations to Dr Patrick Miller (School of Biology) on being named winner of the 3rd Annual Kobe Award for his fundamental contributions in the field of Marine Science.
The five-member academic committee made the award for Patrick’s research into sperm whale vocalisation and the impact of man-made underwater sounds on whale communication.
sponsored by the Suma Aqualife Park in Kobe, Japan, for fundamental contributions from scholars to the field of Marine Science.
The internationally competitive award includes a cash prize and an invitation to give a public Award Lecture at the Suma Aqualife Park in Japan on 21 April (co-incidentally, Patrick's birthday). The five-member academic committee made the award for Patrick’s contributions to sperm whale vocalization, prey echolocation, and impacts of man-made underwater sounds on whale communication.
