Prof. Kelly Benoit-Bird, the first speaker in this Fall's Booz Allen Hamilton Distinguished Colloquium in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Maryland, was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship this week.

Prof. Benoit-Bird, a marine biologist at Oregon State University, was awarded the fellowship for her innovative use of sophisticated acoustic engineering technology to explore the previously invisible behavior of ocean creatures and address long-unanswered questions about the structure and behavior of food chains.

For more information about Prof. Benoit-Bird's MacArthur Fellowship and to see a video about her research, visit the MacArthur Fellowships website.
