I am a third-year PhD student looking at rewilding, with a particular interest in restoring wetland and floodplain habitats and natural flood dynamics. I am also interested in how rewilding could help support species more typically associated with agricultural landscapes (particularly "high nature value" farmland) as those species reliant on farmland are threatened by both agricultural intensification and abandoment.
