Clara Amorim was born and lived in Portugal, Lisbon, where she graduated in Biology by the University of Lisbon (1991). Subsequently, she completed an MPhil degree by the University of Leicester (1994) on fish foraging behavior, and a PhD degree by the University of Aberdeen (1997) on acoustic communication in fish. After the PhD she returned to Portugal and continued her research in fish bioacoustics. Her research has focused on the significance of acoustic signals in species recognition, choice and agonistic interactions. Recently she has also focused on the impact of anthropogenic noise on fish. She has been a lecturer since 2001 at Lusofona University and more recently at ISPA- Instituto Universitário, where she is currently a Principal Investigator.
