Angelina Sanderson Bellamy is an ecologist and a research fellow at the Sustainable Places Research Institute, working on themes of sustainable food systems, land use changes, ecological resilience and ecosystem services. She uses a social-ecological framework and interdisciplinary methods (interviews, focus groups, observations and ecological sampling) to understand how people drive and respond to ecosystem changes. She has worked extensively with banana and coffee production systems in Latin America. Before coming to Cardiff University, Angelina worked at the Stockholm Resilience Centre and Stanford University’s Wood’s Institute for the Environment. She currently has research projects in Wales (policy implementation of biodiversity and ecosystem resilience), Mexico (governance gaps between land use policy and coastal zone conservation), Costa Rica, Brazil and Colombia (social and environmental impact of food certification).
