Tatiana Satchivi studies soundscapes to protect biodiversity

Tatiana Satchivi, a graduate of the Nelson Institute’s Environmental Observation and Informatics (EOI) program, studies soundscapes to understand the effects of selective logging in tropical forests on biodiversity.

She used her experience in the EOI program as a springboard to pursue a PhD in tropical forest conservation at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is a graduate researcher in Zuzana Burivalova’s Sound Forest Lab, where she is working to develop a tool that helps assess how well logging concessions do to limit the disruption caused to wildlife.

As part of her research, she is also interested in bringing awareness about the importance of biodiversity to local communities and finding a balance between the daily needs of these communities and the protection of biodiversity.
