Christa Woodley is an internationally recognized researcher and project manager of applied freshwater, estuarine and marine studies at the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Enviromental Laboratroy. Prior to ERDC, Dr. Woodley worked at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) where she conducted large-scale biotelemetry studies focused on anadromous fish passage through lower Federal Columbia River Power System (+60K salmon acoustically tracked over 4 dams, ~178 rkm distance, 1 petabyte of data) requiring complex analyses (i.e., hydropower operations, passage technologies, route/survival, resident time, water quality, acoustic variables, survival, fish condition- health and trauma).
Woodley has developed several indices to measure
1. trauma indices from impulsive and sustained acoustics (confined rock blasting, pile driving, tidal turbine), and rapid decompression (i.e. hydropower exposure),
2. reducing the bio-effects of acoustic telemetry transmitters and the implantation process, and
3. developing physiological and molecular markers.
In addition, she has participated in the development of 5 ecological software programs (FishSuite!), injectable acoustic micro-transmitter for the Juvenile Salmon Acoustic Telemetry System (IAMT, JSATS) and underwater sound recording device (URS). She has 16 yrs of fisheries experience and 8+ year record of successful launching, directing, and managing multidisciplinary projects. Dr. Woodley has authored 27 peer-reviewed publications (3 in review), 1 book chapter, 34 reports, developed technology, over 400+hrs presenting and training.
Her research focuses on hydropower and coastal energy development, underwater impact of impulsive and continuous noise, impacted habitat restoration, and climate change effects on the physiology and behavior of freshwater/estuarine/marine animals, in particular, migratory species. She has extensive experience in the Pacific Northwest, California coasts, Gulf of Mexico, and off the southeastern United States. In addition, she develops novel techniques for fisheries using technology and methods from the medical industry (e.g., surgeon training programs, knotless sutures to close implantation wounds, mucosal-based adhesives, and molecular assays).

Author of 28 peer reviewed articles, During years the scientific interest of he switched from the improvement of growth performance of livestock per se, by the use of natural additive in the diet, to the use of nutritional additive that can provide increased health conditions during stressful periods of livestock rearing cycle or in young growing animals.
With this aim, in the last decade, experimental nutritional trials were performed on cows, calves, horses, poultries and piglets, testing polyunsaturated fatty acids (EPA and DHA) vs. saturated fatty acids, the use of probiotics/prebiotics, the inclusion of some antioxidant compounds in animal diets.
