Stuart, Hannah

MSc student, Nature, Society and Environmental Governance

University of Oxford

I previously worked as Research and Campaign Officer for Humane Research Australia, and now currently work part-time as Campaign Coordinator of Be Cruelty-Free Australia – a partnership between Humane Research Australia and Humane Society International (Global) working to end cosmetics animal testing in Australia and around the globe. I am also about to start studying a MSc in Nature, Society and Environmental Governance.

My research interests include anthrozoology, ethnobiology, political ecology, and effective animal advocacy. I am keen to contribute towards more biocentric / less anthropocentric approaches to environmental and animal protection policy, and am very interested in any opportunities to become more involved in these areas.
