Dr Jennifer Rowntree
Senior Lecturer in Conservation Genetics and Applied Conservation
Principal investigator

I joined Manchester Metropolitan University as a senior lecturer in Ecological Genetics and Applied Conservation in 2016. After finishing my PhD in 2006, I worked at the Royal Botanic Gardens as a conservation officer managing an ex situ project for threatened UK plants. In 2011, I was awarded an NERC Fellowship to work on the genetics of species interactions, which I started at the University of York and then moved to the University of Manchester, where I became a lecturer in 2015. My research focuses on the value of biodiversity and conservation, population and community genetics with current projects spanning terrestrial and marine environments in temperate and tropical biomes.
