Ella Chiara Vallelonga is a Doctoral Higher Degree by Research Candidate in the Department of Anthropology and Development Studies at the University of Adelaide. Her thesis titled 'Grieving the Great Barrier Reef: More-than-Human Dying and the Hydrosocial in Far North Queensland Cane Country,' examines the intersections between sugarcane agriculture, water quality and a “less-like-us" dying. Operating in the spaces of multispecies ethnography, ecology studies and environmental anthropology, her research navigates the social politics of mourning bodies not typically mourned and considers conditions of ecological grieving as perpetuated by climate crises. She is supervised by Dr. Georgina Drew and Dr. Alison Dundon.
