I'm Jack Daniels, a third year iPhD student in the International Centre for Ecohydraulics Research at the University of Southampton.
My research focuses on the interactions between invasive species and river infrastructure, two of the biggest threats to global fresh water environments. The results of this research will facilitate a better understanding of the trade-offs between these key anthropogenic stressors, with the aim of improving management decisions in fresh waters.
Alongside my PhD, I have been involved in a number of interdisciplinary research projects, covering topics such as freshwater pollution, neotropical fish migration, and camouflage. I also enjoy public engagement projects, and have a strong interest in science policy.
Outside of science, I am a landscape and wildlife photographer, currently shooting with the Sony A7iii.
