Dr Paul Wensveen

Dr Paul Wensveen
Visiting Scholar


I’m a marine ecologist and acoustician working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Iceland. I'm also a Visiting Scholar with Prof Patrick Miller at the University of St Andrews.

Research interests: Effects of noise on wildlife, Animal behaviour and movement, Biologging and biotelemetry, Acoustic ecology, Quantitative ecology, and Sensory biology

Research ongoing: Behavioural effects of naval sonar on northern bottlenose and sperm whales and Ecological monitoring through passive acoustics of marine mammals and songbirds in Iceland.
