Dr Phil Doherty

Postdoctoral Researcher

 The Farmhouse 

 

The Farmhouse, University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Cornwall, TR10 9FE, UK

My research involves investigating the spatial patterns of sharks to try and identify areas of high importance and to ascertain the drivers behind these movements and their links to environmental variables and seasons. This research will hopefully inform management and create mitigation and protection measures against threats, especially those of human origin (i.e. fisheries, renewable energy construction or areas of oil/gas extraction).
