As a PhD researcher at the Centre Connecting Humans and Nature, I analyse how biodiversity loss is experienced in our society from the perspective of the environmental humanities.
More specifically I analyse how citizen scientists experience biodiversity loss and how they (can) express these experiences, feelings and emotions on digital platforms where observations of flora and fauna are shared.
