Ashlie McIvor is a “la Caixa” INPhINIT Doctoral fellow at MARE – Marine and Environmental Sciences Centre, Regional Agency for the Development of Research Technology and Innovation (ARDITI). Her PhD research is conducted in affiliation with the University of Lisbon (FCUL) to investigate the occurrence of marine apex predators, and how they are impacted by anthropogenic pressures in a remote, insular habitat.
Ashlie completed her BSc (Hons) degree at the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS), and her MSc in Marine Science and Engineering at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). Ashlie has presented in many international scientific conferences and collaborated in many international research cruises, including the Scottish shelf seas, the Arctic circle, and the Saudi Arabian Red Sea. She continues to collaborate with institutes within Portugal, and across Europe, Asia, and North America.
Ashlie has broad interests in anthropogenic impacts on marine predator movement ecology and is working closely with local and international stakeholders to promote their conservation.
