Ashley has conducted research in Africa for over 20 years funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Geographic Society. Her research in the East Africa Rift Valley has two components: (1) studies with paleoanthropologists at Olduvai Gorge and Laetoli on the water resources used by hominins millions of years ago, and (2) investigations of the modern water resources focused on rainfall, groundwater, and springs in the Lake Natron, Lake Manyara, and Lake Eyasi region. These areas have competing interests of tourism, herding (e.g. Maasi), agriculture, and hunting and gathering (Hadzabe).
