Thank you for taking the time to read this information sheet.
I am a PhD student at the University of Exeter looking at shark-human interactions in the Anthrozoology (human-animal interactions) department. As part of this research I am investigating perceptions of sharks.
My working project title is:
A trans-species and sensory ethnography of human-shark (Selachimorpha) encounters
Part of my research is to look at perceptions across social media platforms. I have applied for and been awarded a Twitter academic researcher account which permits Tweets to be analysed for non-commercial research.
Please find more about the nature of the nature of the research and participants rights here.
