Simon Allen, Dr.
My research interests include assessing wildlife-human interactions through fisheries, tourism and the influence of climate breakdown. I also study the complex social and foraging behaviours of coastal dolphins as a PrincipaI Investigator on the long-running Shark Bay Dolphin Research (www.sharkbaydolphins.org). I have broad interests in behavioural ecology and the conservation of biodiversity. I'm an avid field biologist, drone pilot and wildlife photographer.
