I’m an ESRC funded MRes / PhD student, working on an interdisciplinary project that spans the natural and social sciences. With an academic background in biology and anthropology, and a professional background in UK ecology, I am exploring sustainability in beekeeping and pollination systems. This in turn impacts upon the sustainability of our food production and wider landscape.
Taking a place-based approach and working closely with UK beekeepers and other stakeholders, I hope to co-create ecological knowledge that will aid sustainable management and policy decisions. I also hope to increase understanding of resilience in this linked social-ecological system.
