Ella Vallelonga is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Anthropology and Development Studies at the University of Adelaide. Her thesis examines the intersections between ecological loss, adaptation and water, tracing ecological emotion and stewardship action across at-risk landscapes. Operating in the spaces of multispecies ethnography, ecology studies and environmental anthropology, her research navigates the social politics of human-environment and human-water relations, and considers conditions of ecological grief as it manifests along the Great Barrier Reef. She is supervised by Associate Professor Georgina Drew, Dr. Alison Dundon and Associate Professor Douglas Bardsley.
