SWEEP Impact Assistant
School of Biological and Marine Sciences (Faculty of Science and Engineering)
I am interested in understanding how humans interact with the environment and how these interactions are shaped by differences in knowledge, perceptions and cultural values. For my master’s I investigated the ecology and cultural relevance of the common prawn fishery on the Isles of Scilly, coupling social and ecological data to take an interdisciplinary approach towards conservation studies.
My work in the aMER group supports two projects: assisting the ongoing Lyme Bay monitoring project; and working on a potting study in Lundy as a SWEEP Impact assistant on the Blue Biosphere Natural Capital Accelerator Programme.
