Research Fellow, Cardiff University

Dr Leanne Cullen-Unsworth is a Research Fellow at the Sustainable Places Research Institute.

Leanne's research interests broadly are in coupled social-ecological systems and sustainability in the marine environment, in particular, marine and coastal resource use and management. She currently focuses on seagrass meadows and leads an international project investigating drivers of seagrass decline across multiple scales throughout SE Asia . Through her role as a director of Project Seagrass she is also working to improve our understanding of seagrass systems in the UK and raise awareness of their ecosystem service value. Co-development of solutions to resource problems using a variety of mixed methodological approaches, including cooperative research, is a strong interest of hers.
