Dorian S. Houser, Ph.D., directs the NMMF's Biologic and Bioacoustic Research Program.

This program strives to understand the overall biology of marine mammals with the goal of improving species conservation. A focus of the program is to determine the potential for humans to impact marine mammals, particularly with respect to sound-producing activities. Dorian has worked with the Navy’s marine mammal population since 1995 and he joined the National Marine Mammal Foundation in 2010. His interests include the diving, auditory and metabolic physiology of marine mammals and their use of bioacoustics. He is the recipient of the R. Bruce Lindsay Award from the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), is a Fellow of ASA, and is an adjunct professor at Sonoma State University.
