Biography

Joseph Sisneros is a Professor in the Department of Psychology and an adjunct Professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington. He is also an affiliate faculty of the UW Virginia Merrill Bloedel Hearing Research Center and the UW Graduate program in Neuroscience. He received his BS in Marine Biology (1988) and MS in Biology (1993) from California State University Long Beach where he was advised by Dr. Donald Nelson (shark behaviorist, 1937-1997). Joe received a PhD (1999) in Biology from the Florida Institute of Technology where he was mentored by Dr. Timothy Tricas (animal behaviorist and neuroethologist, now at the University of Hawaii at Manoa). Following his PhD, Joe received post-doctoral training in the lab of Dr. Andrew Bass (neuroanatomist and neuroethologist) at Cornell University in the Dept of Neurobiology and Behavior from 1999-2004. He joined the faculty at the University of Washington in 2004 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology. Joe was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2010 and then to full Professor in 2016. He is currently an Associate editor for the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America (JASA) and a co-organizer for international conferences on The Effects of Noise on Aquatic Life.
