Dr Sarah Crowley
Associate Research Fellow


I am an environmental social scientist / anthrozoologist interested in understanding socio-ecological relationships between humans and other animals, both wild and domestic. My PhD research applied social scientific methodologies to understand and inform the management of monk parakeets in southeast England; Eurasian beavers in Devon; and grey squirrels throughout the UK. I am now working on a project that considers the relationships between domestic cats, their owners, and wildlife.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Animal management and governance (particularly introduced and reintroduced species)
  • Environmental conflict
  • Interdisciplinary research methods
  • Anthrozoology (the interdisciplinary study of human-animal interactions)
