Daniel Jolly

PhD Researcher

Daniel Jolly is a PhD Researcher and an early career functional ecologist. He is funded by the ARIES Doctoral Raining Partnership and the Centre for Fisheries and Aquaculture Science. His research investigates whether biodegradable alternatives are truly better for the environment than conventional plastic products. Utilising a mixture of fieldwork and lab-based studies, this work aims to establish how biodegradable litter may behave in aquatic environments and how its presence and interactions with climate change may impact the functioning of key ecosystems.

Daniel holds a BSC in Environmental Geography from the University of York and an MSc with Distinction in Oceanography from the University of Southampton. He is also a member of the UEA Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Conservation.
