Oscar Hartman Davies

Social Sciences Engagement Fellow


  • School of Geography and the Environment

Oscar defended his DPhil thesis at the School of Geography and the Environment in January 2024 and is currently working as a Social Sciences Engagement Fellow between the School and Youngwilders, a youth-led nature recovery organisation based in the UK which he co-founded.

He is an environmental geographer whose work centres around the emerging interdisciplinary field of ‘digital ecologies’, and his DPhil thesis considers the mobilisation of seabirds as sentinels of environmental change, and their entanglement in digital transformations in ocean governance. His current fellowship seeks to integrate social scientific insights on effective participatory approaches to nature’s recovery into the work of Youngwilders and the European Young Rewilders network, and he is also working as a visiting researcher between KTH Royal Institute of Technology and the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm.
