Lucy-Mae McSweeney

Lucy-Mae McSweeney is a PhD candidate on the multidisciplinary project ‘Digitising Biodiversity: Landscape-Animal-Digital-Human Translations’ at Trinity College Dublin where she is researching the translation of non-human interactions via digital means to human understanding. By carrying out ethnographic fieldwork, Lucy’s research explores how STEM researchers centralised around the theme of biodiversity in the University process and interpret information from the more-than-human world. 

Lucy-Mae holds an MA in Anthropology from UCC where her thesis explored human-animal relations with a focus on the cultural practice of beekeeping in the south-east of Ireland.
