The breadth of our research makes the
School an attractive and dynamic place to study. Areas of research include:
- social anthropology
- biological and evolutionary
- ethnobotany and environmental
- forensic osteology and
- conservation biology and genetics
- human geography
- international wildlife trade.
The reputation and expertise of our
academic staff has attracted substantial research funding over the last 10
years from bodies such as the European Research Council (£1.6 million awarded
to Professor Zoe Davies), the British Academy (£242,000 awarded to Dr Emmy Bocaege) and the Marie Curie-Skłodowska Foundation (£156,000 awarded to Dr Alanna Cant).
Our staff use their research to
increase understanding of our evolutionary history, improve conservation practice, propose novel approaches to the challenges of conservation and environmental management and better understand human interactions within their environment. They seek to challenge perceptions of anthropology
and conservation through ground-breaking projects run in collaboration with
partnerships all over the world.
