Ana Cañadas research interests are population dynamics and ecology, and the application of science to inform conservation and management.
Her research activities focus on four main areas:
- investigation and modelling of the distribution, habitat selection and habitat use of marine top predators;
- the estimation of abundance and trends;
- the development and application of novel analytical methodologies;
- the development and application of practical measures based on robust science to address specific conservation and management issues, including the development of science-based conservation plans, management actions and marine protected areas.
