The QUT Ecoacoustics research group is led by Professor Paul Roe. The lab investigates the use of acoustic sensing technology for monitoring the environment.

Key areas of research include:

- Automated and semi-automated acoustic data analysis methods, including:
    - Creating recognisers for rare, endangered or invasive species
    - Content-based similarity search
    - Smart sampling of audio to assist species richness surveys
- Novel applications of acoustic sensing to biodiversity monitoring
- Invasive species monitoring
- Rare and endangered species monitoring
- Navigation and visualisation of long duration acoustic recordings

Our acoustic workbench software, currently running at www.ecosounds.org, provides management, visualisation, and analysis services for large amounts of environmental audio data.
