I am a conservation researcher interested in the interface between environmental and human sciences. My PhD seeks to study both ecological and social dimensions of birds of prey translocations by researching the proposed translocation of the locally endangered hen harrier to Southern England. To this end, I am currently investigating local stakeholder perspectives, the debate surrounding the management of the species in the media, but also the viability of the reintroduced individuals when socio-political and ecological factors are considered.
