Dr Ashley Bennison

Post Doctoral Scientist

I am a post-doctoral researcher with research interests in animal movement, seabird ecology, and species distribution modelling.  My undergraduate studies were at the University of Roehampton before attending the University of Exeter for an MSc Evolutionary and Behavioural Ecology in 2012. In 2014 I came to Ireland to work as a Research Assistant at University College Cork; before undertaking a PhD in the movement ecology of seabirds at sea. I joined the MFRC to work on quantitative techniques for predicting seabird distribution. I have extensive field experience and have worked on a range of seabird species, grey seals, sharks, beaked whales, and fish.
