RESEARCHER AND CONSERVATIONIST
Hollie is an oceanographer and conservationist with a background in mobile marine megafauna. She completed her MSc in Marine Mammal Science at the University of St Andrew’s.
Using her strengths in modelling, data analysis and machine learning, Hollie hopes to gain insights into the spatial distribution of blue sharks and fisheries overlap in the Atlantic. Previous research includes the influences of oceanography on cetacean distribution in SW Ireland; the effects of marine traffic on porpoises in SW England; and using artificial intelligence to identify vessel presence and the impact on Mediterranean monk seals.
She currently works as a data analyst for the British Antarctic Survey, having recently returned from Antarctica. Hollie is also a HSE Professional SCUBA Diver, and a keen rock climber and mountaineer.
