Siobhan Maderson

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow and Associate Lecturer in the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences, Aberystwyth University

My research focuses on Traditional Environmental Knowledge and its applications to contemporary environmental challenges. I use social science research methods to complement life science research on pollinator decline and other challenges to food security, biodiversity and environmental stability. I am interested in science communication, and utilising diverse forms of knowledge and expertise to improve environmental management.
