Stephanie Januchowski-Hartley

Sêr Cymru Research Fellow in Environmental Sciences, Swansea University

I am a Sêr Cymru Research Fellow at Swansea University in the College of Science and Department of BioSciences.

My research falls broadly within environmental decision making, geography, and environmental science, with a particular focus on improving our understanding of how humans influence aquatic ecosystems, and the diverse relationships that humans have with these ecosystems. I have worked and published on topics ranging from ecosystem connectivity and fragmentation, conservation priorities, people's perceptions of conservation programs, and I am passionate about the interplay between sciences and arts, and how we can work together to better understand people's connections with rivers and underwater environments.
